Tatua Fellowship is a six month program that is designed to train and coach Community Leaders and Social Activists leading social change initiatives on the practice of Community Organizing as an effective tool to harness people power for sustainable change. The Tatua curriculum affords fellows the chance to train on Community Organizing and run an actual on-ground campaign on their issue with coaching from a peer and experienced organizer from Tatua. If you are interested, please go ahead to apply here.
The fellowship requires a part-time commitment designed to work around employment, a total of 20 hours per week, most of which time is spent on the fellow’s community organizing his /her campaign. The training and collective events are structured in way that would be convenient for all the fellows. It is unpaid, but fellows work with the organisation to raise funds to cover all costs of participation.
Tatua’s goal for 2017 is to establish 20 powerful campaigns, which translates to 20 fellows in 20 communities. This month, Tatua is going to be graduating 16 incredible organizers who have patiently and courageously worked with us over the last 6 months in 2016’s fellowship. Please look out for some of the campaign stories that we will be releasing in our media over the next two months.
On September 5th 2016, we launched the recruitment campaign for the 2017 fellowship. In addition to Nairobi, Tatua is looking for candidates in 3 more counties (Machakos, Kiambu, Kajiado) to join the next cohort of fellows, leaders who seek to transform their way of engaging with local communities in matters social justice. If you or an associate of your organization or a member of your network is interested in the program, find the application process here.
