Tearfund partners are involved in many different advocacy initiatives, from the local to the international level. These include: educating community groups on their rights; encouraging Christians to become involved in politics; preventing environmental destruction; and monitoring the government to ensure that they use debt relief for poverty alleviation.
More case studies can be found in the new Advocacy toolkit.
We would love to include more case studies so would like to hear from any Tearfund partners who want to share their stories.
