The learning review of the SABI Programme found that overall, citizen demand for improved services can result in better education, health care, and social protection when citizens are accompanied by an integrated programme of support.

The SABI programme moved citizens through a process of survey, situation analysis, prioritization of needs, understanding of how to get the changes they seek, and accompaniment through ward, district, and even national levels.

The programme successfully countered citizen feelings of disempowerment and apathy, and strengthened their ability to hold service providers and local authorities to account.

SABI’s patient approach was key and achievements were based on the trust built among citizens and local authorities and service providers.
