capacity building

The foundational mandate of SEATINI is to build the capacity of trade negotiators to be able to achieve positive pro-African outcomes in trade bargains and to generate and share quality trade information to multiple user audiences. SEATINI’s responsibilities have grown to include networking, strengthening and building the capacity of communities, smallholder farmers, trade unions, parliamentarians, community based organizations, women, and special interest groups to understand how the trade and investment issues infringe on their socio-economic outcomes for the groups to be able to advocate effectively for trade rights and influence development of their communities.

Our Dream

SEATINI’s dream for a future world is one without war and violence. It is one where nobody needs to go hungry or thirsty, or without clothing, shelter, clean water, ample sources of energy, good health and education, and the higher pursuits of knowledge. It is a dream of a borderless world, where people move freely between climes and cultures, and where social structures, inclusion, culture and dignity give more status than consumer goods. It is a world where the benefits of the phenomenal advancement of science and technology are available to all, where these are applied to satisfy all the reasonable and sensible material needs of the world’s populations, where survival, access to basic needs and dignity are not dependent on paid labour
