Institute for Democracy launches community workshops

The Namibia Institute for Democracy (NID) in cooperation with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) commenced with a series of countrywide Civic Education Workshops in Windhoek.

Venues and schedules of the workshops which are currently on going up until 31 August were announced via their Facebook page and their website, www.nid.org.na.
According to Naita Hishoono, Executive Director of NID, these educational workshops aim at strengthening self-confidence and political involvement of community members as key building blocks of Namibian civil society and democracy. The workshops focus on issues affecting local communities and how they can effectively communicate such issues to relevant stakeholders and authorities for successful resolution.
Among others, participants will learn about the country’s political structures and how to participate in civic processes through NID social networking sites. They will also be trained in the use of Email, Facebook and Twitter to voice their opinions through social media.
“Civic Education plays an important role in creating informed and mature citizens to partake in social and political processes,” she added.
