User’s notes
For quite a long time, non-governmental organisations wanted to collaborate with government departments
to plan for, and implement energy programmes. This has been a challenge to many organisations in the
East African region. The case study is an example of women’s groups which, through a collaborative effort
between NGOs and the government, mobilised themselves and managed t o work as models to initiate
formation of other groups and eventually were able to gain government support for supervision and
capacity-building in energy technologies.
The major gender-related issues in this case study include:
Organisations need to consider the gender division of labour in the household in order to know how
and what implications the intervention will have on different people in the household.
Group mobilisation works as a social mechanism for disadvantaged groups and those who seek
common ground, in order to seek a collective voice for policy influence
Gender-focused programmes can be supported by the stage.
