I'm a human rights defender, particularly, I help members of my community to understand legal procedures that govern Makueni County government resource mobilization and utilization. In scope, I train communities to understand policies that guide budget-making process so as during public participation forum, the community can be able to articulate sensible issues surrounding the process.

In addition, the community members trace not only the budget-making process but also monitor government expenditures, and where they are not satisfied, we follow legal procedures to file a suit in court or petition through Makueni County Assembly.
Mue Ndeto is the network champion (main point of contact) for Makueni Civil Society Network.
