Activity 2 – Stakeholder Engagement: The grantee will work to ensure the engagement and buyin of the CP philosophy across multiple levels of the police management hierarchy – police officers, middle management/head of district departments, and Ministry officials – through meetings and the sharing of information.
Activity 3 – Small-scale Infrastructure: The grantee will carry out small-scale infrastructure improvements to potentially include: refurbishments at participating school(s); technology enhancements at participating school(s) to support programmatic elements of the cooperative agreement; and refurbishment/construction of community or school sport facilities to support project activities.
