Tools for Citizens

Tools for Citizens is a cooperation programme of MitOst and Anadolu Kültür and with the consultancy of Laden Yurttagüler und Yörük Kurtaran and is supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung. It aims at supporting civil society actors from Turkey through developing and providing easy and accessible tools. The programme is based on a specific need analysis with civil society actors from all over Turkey and with different backgrounds. 

40 civil society actors contributed to this need analysis at the Kick-off meeting in April 2017 in Istanbul. The participants explored and discussed needs and challenges in the fields of impact and strategy, structure and roles, networking, leadership, visibility and communication, project management, monitoring and evaluation, fundraising, advocacy and campaigning as well as volunteer management.

Until the end of 2017, MitOst, the Center for Civil Society Studies and Anadolu Kültür develop a tailor-made toolbox for the capacity building of civil society organisations in Turkey. In the scope of an Academy in October, multipliers will be trained to work with these developed tools. The finalised toolbox will be available in Turkish and English from 2018 on.
