Kakamega Civil Society Reference Group / Kakamega MNCH CSO Alliance

Kakamega County, Kenya
Joined July 2020

In Kenya, a county called Kakamega on the western side of Kenya, our organisation operates in the county. Our mission is to assist the grassroots community in alleviating community injustices

Presence in: Kenya
Focus: Governance, Accountability & Transparency, Peace-building & Transitional Justice

The networks participate in key government convened public participation programmes aimed at seeking community views on important projects funded by the government.  In such meetings our presence deters the possibility of government operatives who use such meetings as rubber-stamps to promote their personal agenda of using public funds.  The network has member organisations spread across all the sub-counties of the county of Kakamega.  We also source partners who enable us have workshops with key government officers so as to discuss important documents that have a serious bearing on implementation of community benefit projects.  Social Audit is an area we also participate in.  Social injustices that may arise are the other areas we participate in.

Interests: Governance, Accountability & Transparency, Peace-building & Transitional Justice
Am not an expert. My highest level of education is an Advanced Diploma. I have also trained in Conflict Resolution and Peace Building. Am a male adult born in 1963. I started serving the community in the year 2007. Am a member couple of Civil Society Organisations and also Coordinate two Civil Society networks in Kenya within a county that has about 1.5 million. My focus is on maintaining social justice and fairness. By joining the network, I believe I will be privileged to participate in programmes that will improve my capacity to improve on delivering service to the community. My community too, may also have the chance to be taken through information programmes by more enlightened parties. Networking also provides the chance to get support in moments that may require technical and resources assistance on behalf of the community, if and when such need may arise.
