This project is being implemented at the national level and in 8 sub counties in Homabay and Migori Counties. The overall objective of the project is to contribute to a participatory, transparent, accountable management of public resources for efficient service delivery in Kenya. The project comprises of two main components namely, capacity building and lobby and advocacy.
Specifically, this project seeks to:
- Empower CSOs at the national level to undertake policy advocacy, skills building of citizens to participate effectively in Public Finance Management (PFM) processes.
- Empower 30% of the adult population in Migori and Homabay counties to effectively participate in Public Finance Management (PFM) processes (at the county level).
The project will therefore empower citizens and CSOs to influence progressive budgeting and spending that deliver increased investment in public services that respond to the needs, priorities and rights of the citizens in Homabay and Migori counties and at the national level.
