The MRC fellows have begun to develop their project ideas. The projects are focused on learning and creating change in their environment. It was necessary that leaders or change-makers had a thorough understanding of research, advocacy, and lobbying before making decisions about project ideas. The MRC conducted a three-day training program on research advocacy and lobbying for its fellows. During this training, fellows learned about research types, tools, and steps. In addition, they learned the importance of lobbying and networking for sustainable community development. Through this training, fellows can work with communities on the ground to achieve sustainable development.
