Motivation

Monitoring the budget process and educating the public on this subject are among the things that have consecrated our activity, since our launch in 2012. In the 10 years since, we have carried out constant research programs, education, trainings, coaching, constant support for citizens, organisations, journalists and even local and central elected officials.

În continuare, cunoștințele puține pe care multe organizații le au despre bugete și cheltuiala banului public sunt un obstacol în fața unor acțiuni de advocacy reușite și cu impact în comunitățile locale. Știm asta din prisma solicitărilor de sprijin pe acest domeniu de la organizații  cu mai puține resurse dar și prin observarea unor indicatori de tipul celor din Open Budget Survey care plasează procesul bugetar românesc aproape pe 0 ca participare.

Goals

We will put together and maintain an online support center for those who want to better understand how public budgets are made and how taxpayer money is spent. The published information, educational materials and news in the field will be addressed to those NGOs that want to use this knowledge in advocacy actions.

At the same time, we will work with 40 organisations or civic groups from the country who are interested in speaking „bugeteză”. Through online and offline sessions, we will show them how to develop advocacy campaigns with a budgeting component and how to involve the local community in these actions.

Activities

  1. Sociological research to find areas with low NGO participation in the budget process
  2. Analysis of the needs of those civic groups through meetings and interviews
  3. Development of online support center and educational materials
  4. Organizing trainings for civic groups, both online and offline, with public registration
  5. Organising a train of trainers event for trainers in the budgetary field and the development of joint action plans at local level

Beneficiares

The materials and events developed in this project will be intended for those organizations or civic groups in the country that want to develop their ability to conduct advocacy campaigns on the budget process. Also, the resources of the support center will be public and available to any citizen who wants to train his civic muscle.
