Citizens & Leaders

Democracies cannot be healthy and flourish without active citizens who participate in society, who solve problems their communities face, who are informed and skilled in participation.


This applies to both citizens and citizen representatives or politicians. If political leaders do not espouse democratic principals and ethics and don’t have the required skills-set or theoretical framework democracy cannot grow.


Democracy Works Foundation, therefore, offers several innovative trainings that are targeted at the following beneficiaries:


  • political leaders, whether established or youthful;
  • citizen and community leaders;
  • civil society activists and change-makers.
