Kenyan head-quartered Tax Justice Network Africa will adopt both off-line and online system for its annual tax justice advocate training programme post COVID-19.
This year’s programme has attracted over 500 participants across the continent, with the numbers having risen five-fold compared to previous years.
“These are the advantages we are realising despite the COVID-19 Challenges. We will continue doing this, and going forward we will be doing a combination, hopefully after the crisis of both physical training but also continuing on online training,” said TJNA Executive Director, Alvin Mosioma.
Since the inception of the International Tax Justice Academy (ITJA) over the last six years ,number of participants has been ranging from 80 to 100. All the previous classes have been conducted in physically classrooms.
We have already received positive feedback from past participants and some of the participants in the room today and learning from the lessons we will continuously improve on the online training as we prepare to resume physical trainings next year,” said Mosioma.
To date the programme has trained more than 1000 participants from the entire continent drawn from the civil society, media, trade unions, policy makers and academia.
The 7th edition of the training has been themed, Tax Justice Advocacy: Increasing Participation of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and Journalists through Capacity Building.
It will run until 3rd of July 2020.
