Good Practice

Strengthening workers' organizations in the Arab countries through social, economic and legal literacy - Final evaluation

Good Practice Description

A careful and sensitive approach towards financial support for fragile, precarious or nascent workers' organisations, which did not endanger their long term sustainability through the development of financial dependency on external donors.

The high quality training of trainers provision, based on robust pedagogical methodology used in this project was a good practice. This led to the establishment of teams of trained volunteer trainers, able to deliver substantial local and national training events for members and activists with very little further support or assistance. This provides a good basis of a sustainable trade union education and training programme appropriate for unions with limited resources. It is an objective frequently proposed in capacity-building projects, but rarely achieved.
