The Interactive Voices project seeks to empower community members in the Harare, Chitungwiza and Bulawayo suburbs to demand for adequate service delivery from their elected officials through constitutional literacy. The projects aim is to provide platforms for knowledge sharing of public service delivery constitutional rights through community interface dialogues in the form of drama presentations.

It further creates an opportunity for the community members to engage in dialogue with their Councillors, District officers and in some cases Town Mayors. Reaching out to at least 1000 people a month the project creates practical significance to citizens in general because it focuses on the importance of raising awareness of residents of their rights, entitlements and responsibilities to demand and contribute to improved quality, efficiency and effectiveness in delivery of services in their cities. This project has led to civic engagement, which empowers citizens and community groupings to participate in the planning, implementation and monitoring of the service provision mechanisms.
