What We Do
Constitutionalism and Rule of Law in Political, Economic and social Processes
We seek to entrench the new constitutional order in all aspects of the Kenyan’s lives by encouraging the adoption of laws that are in conformity with the Kenyan Constitution 2010 and education of the public to fully participate in ensuring Constitutional legal framework takes root. The process of implementation is to be felt at all levels and across all sectors and therefore we will work towards promoting a new way of thinking that corresponds with the new laws and ensures that all processes, (political, economic and socio-cultural) are guided by constitutionalism and rule of law.
Human Rights and Gender Parity in National Policies
Under this thematic area, our work focuses on national institutions and community based groups to entrench gender and human rights in peoples’ day to day lives. We will specifically target women and youth to bring them at the forefront of development and ensure that they meaningfully contribute to decision making processes across all levels. Our interventions will be informed by The Bill of Rights in the Kenyan Constitution 2010 to undertake interventions that ensure entrenchment of gender and human rights principles in the fabric of our society.
Citizens’ Participation in Good Governance and Social Accountability
Under this thematic area, we will work towards empowering citizens to be at the forefront of demanding accountability from the duty bearers. This will entail making information available at all levels and promoting the participation of the citizens in decision making processes. Devolution has created many opportunities in bringing services close to the people but at the same time it has created the need for increased vigilance by citizens to ensure that resources are shared fairly and equitably and their respective responsible utilization.
Community Access, Use and Benefits of Land and Natural Resources
Land and natural resources are emotive issues in Kenya that are at the center of most of the conflicts, political or otherwise. The mere fact that land is valued differently in different parts of the country is in itself an issue to be addressed as the proceeds from it should benefit all without some citizens feeling they are sidelined. Under this thematic area, we seek to create a platform where authorities work hand in hand with citizens to embrace reforms in the land sector and promote the fair distribution of the benefits thereof as well as contributing towards the protection of the environment and promoting going green.
