CIVIL SOCIETY DEVELOPMENT
Recognizing the importance of a strong and vibrant civil society, DT works with new and existing organizations to build capacity and encourage citizen participation in the political process. To increase the role of civil society, DT fosters links between these organizations and government.
Participating in grassroots civil society organizations allows citizens to contribute to the political process, thereby developing a more active, engaged, and representative citizenry. Civil society organizations, including both NGOs and informal groups, can provide a crucial link in connecting citizens with government officials and are often the catalyst behind progressive development.
