It seeks to help organisations to critically review programmes and identify gaps and areas to improve a programme in line with a rights-based, gender-transformative, and youth-centred approach. As stated in the manual, “It is a starting point for managers, programme officers, monitoring and evaluation staff and others to critically review their programmes against proven standards of good practice, to identify gaps and areas where they could improve to better serve young people, and to learn more about a holistic approach to programming that places young people at the centre.” </p> <div class="field button"><a href="http://stopaidsnow.org/sites/stopaidsnow.org/files/ASK%20manual%202016_web.pdf" target="_blank">Click here to download this manual in PDF format. </a></div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher"> <div class="field-label">Publisher:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/africa/node/316284">STOP AIDS NOW!</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-cost-ma"> <div class="field-label">Cost:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Free to download </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-2"> <div class="field-label">Languages:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>English</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Number of Pages:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>86</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-contact-user-ref"> <div class="field-label">Contacts (user reference):&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/africa/users/doortje-%E2%80%98t-hart-stop-aids-now" title="View user profile.">Doortje ‘t Hart...</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/africa/users/miriam-groenhof" title="View user profile.">Miriam Groenhof</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-link-other-nodes"> <div class="field-label">Related Summaries:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/africa/content/access-services-and-knowledge-ask-programme-essential-packages-manual">Access, Services and Knowledge (ASK) Programme - Essential Packages Manual</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/africa/content/access-services-and-knowledge-ask-what-young-people-want-what-young-people-need-kenya-an">Access, Services, and Knowledge (ASK): What Young People Want, What Young People Need - Kenya and Uganda</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/africa/content/evidence-and-rights-based-planning-and-support-tool-srhrhiv-prevention-interventions-you">Evidence and Rights Based Planning and Support Tool for SRHR/HIV Prevention Interventions for Young People</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-source-text"> <div class="field-label">Source:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="http://www.stopaidsnow.org/ASK-manual-2016" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">STOP AIDS NOW!

ActionAid estimates that developing companies give away a further USD $138bn in tax breaks to companies, despite evidence that they're not necessary to attract investors.”</p> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-pdflink"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="http://www.actionaid.org/sites/files/actionaid/tax_power_reflection-action_toolkit_-_mar_2016.pdf" target="_blank">Click here to download this toolkit in PDF format. </a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher"> <div class="field-label">Publisher:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/africa/node/5750">ActionAid International</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-cost-ma"> <div class="field-label">Cost:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Free to download </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-2"> <div class="field-label">Languages:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>English</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Number of Pages:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>36</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-contact-user-ref"> <div class="field-label">Contacts (user reference):&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/africa/users/actionaid-international" title="View user profile.">ActionAid Inter...</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-source-text"> <div class="field-label">Source:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="http://www.actionaid.org/publications/tax-power-campaign-reflection-action-toolkit" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">ActionAid website</a> on September 12 2016.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-emvideo field-field-video"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="emvideo emvideo-video emvideo-youtube"><div id="media-youtube-1" class="media-youtube"> <div id="media-youtube-default-external-1"> <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" height="658" width="800" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/ijtOErKjPMg&amp;amp;rel=0&amp;amp;autoplay=1&amp;amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;amp;playerapiid=ytplayer&amp;amp;fs=1" id="media-youtube-default-external-object-1"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/ijtOErKjPMg&amp;amp;rel=0&amp;amp;autoplay=1&amp;amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;amp;playerapiid=ytplayer&amp;amp;fs=1" /> <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain"/> <param name="quality" value="best"/> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"/> <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF"/> <param name="scale" value="noScale"/> <param name="salign" value="TL"/> <param name="FlashVars" value="playerMode=embedded" /> <param name="wmode" value="transparent" /> <!-- Fallback content --> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijtOErKjPMg"><img src="http://img.youtube.com/vi/ijtOErKjPMg/0.jpg" alt="See video" title="See video" width="800" height="658" /></a> </object> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.comminit.com/africa/content/actionaids-tax-power-campaign-reflection-action-toolkit" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.comminit.com/africa/content/actionaids-tax-power-campaign-reflection-action-toolkit#comments Global Materials Advocacy Anti-Corruption Community Participation Civil Society Person-to-Person Community Groups Governance and Democracy Economic Development NGOs Democracy and Governance -
