In 2006 a group of church leaders in an economically poor community in Zambia turned their passion for seeing their community transformed into action. The church leaders of Mapalo solicited the support of their community – and created a memorandum of understanding between their candidates standing for election as Councillors and Member of Parliament and their community. Every candidate standing for election signed the memorandum of understanding in the run-up to the elections. The community now has a united vision of what their needs are and a powerful lobbying tool to use with their newly elected Councillors and MP for seeing their agreed needs to be met in the next three years.
Jubilee Centre has written a case study of this work – you can download this case study in full: Memorandum of understanding case study (you will need a PDF viewer to view this file – download one for free from Adobe reader or Sumatra PDF).
