About Search for Common Ground
Search for Common Ground’s (SFCG) mission is to transform the way individuals, organizations, and governments deal with conflict, away from adversarial approaches and towards collaborative solutions. Headquartered in Washington DC, USA, and Brussels, Belgium with
field offices in 34 countries, we design and implement multifaceted programs that aim to transform conflict. We seek to help conflicting parties understand their differences and act on their commonalities. SFCG has been working in Zanzibar since 2010 and has focused on using a top-down, bottom up approach to support the Government of National Unity since its formation.
About the “Supporting Citizen Engagement in Governance” project
SFCG, with support from USAID, and in partnership with three local Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and seven Zanzibari radio stations, implemented 24-month project with the overall goal of increased citizen engagement in governance in Zanzibar.
The project’s two specific objectives are:
(1)To enhance citizens’ understanding of the GNU’s functions and structures and how transparent planning and use of public resources affect their daily lives; and
(2)To increase engagement between civil society (including the media) and the GNU, particularly on governance and accountability issues.
The project was implemented in both Unguja and Pemba in Zanzibar.
