An Introduction to Advocacy: A Training Guide

Just added Ritu R. Sharma’s course An Introduction to Advocacy: A Training Guide in ICT4D Courses.

The original material comes from the Academy for Educational Development:

Founded in 1961, AED is an independent, nonprofit organization committed to solving critical social problems and building the capacity of individuals, communities, and institutions to become more self-sufficient. AED works in all the major areas of human development, with a focus on improving education, health, and economic opportunities for the least advantaged in the United States and developing countries throughout the world.

They have an interesting Tools & Publications section with some
training materials.

BUT, though the materials do really look good, IMHO just Sharma’s is a course, so this is the reason to upload to ICT4D Courses only this resource.
