Change the Game Academy

Change the Game Academy Classroom and Online Courses

Change the Game Academy aims at building the capacities of a broad range of organisations at grassroots level. The programme, a partnership between KCDF and Wilde Ganzen Foundation supports Community based organisations (CBOs), Self-help groups (SHGs) and Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to work towards harnessing and growing their resources as well as securing their basic rights and services from duty bearers.

Since its inception in Kenya, more than 100 organisations have successfully trained on the two courses currently on offer; Local Fundraising and Mobilising Support. Based on our experiences, we have developed a blended learning methodology to train grassroots organisations in these two courses.

Online Platform

www.changethegameacademy.org is an online platform with the courses on Local Fundraising and Mobilising Support. The platform offers toolkits, inspiring local cases, a library and information on laws and regulation. The portal can be accessed worldwide free of charge. It recently received the prestigious Comenius EduMedia Siegel award for outstanding products for ICT supported educational media.

Classroom Courses and Coaching

The classroom courses on Local Fundraising and Mobilising Support are based on Kolb’s learning cycle and is interspersed by periods in which trainees test and implement their own plan. The training materials are adopted to the local situation in Kenya and trainings delivered by local certified trainers. In between the different training blocks of classroom courses and after having finished a course, trainees receive coaching from the trainers.
