The Evangelical Fellowship of Zimbabwe (EFZ), a partner of Tearfund, first piloted a ‘social accountability’ approach in 2015. On the strength of the church and community mobilisation process (CCMP), it sought to enhance communities’ capabilities to engage with their local authorities in a manner that is well-informed, non-confrontational and constructive, and thus builds good governance and accountability among power-holders from the bottom up.

An evaluation of the most recent social accountability project has offered us an opportunity to celebrate ways in which members of the participating communities, their local churches and local decision-makers are doing things differently as a result, in part, of the project and its foundation of CCMP.
