This handbook is for any group seeking to bring about improvements in the education provided for children, especially community groups, policy and research institutes and non-governmental organizations. It is a practical guide on how to do advocacy on education from local through to national and international levels. Whilst this handbook focuses on education, it is a valuable resource that is relevant for anyone interested in advocacy work in any sector. Save the Children's experience demonstrates that non-governmental and other groups can have a greater influence on the direction of change if they have a well thought out advocacy strategy. The handbook offers a detailed framework for planning advocacy, alongside case studies and workshops for training or to facilitate analysis.
