Devolution in Kenya has become the cornerstone for the realization of vision 2030 and other development goals. The country is about to celebrate 5 years since the Constitution of Kenya 2010 was promulgated. Among the far-reaching gains that are enshrined in this constitution is meaningful public participation on governance and public affairs issues.  Articles 201 (a), 196 (b) 184 (c), 174 (c), 124 (b), 118, 35, 34, 10-2 (a) provide for access to information and public participation in the decision making processes.

In the month of July 2014, we are running an online Information Accountability (IA) campaign like no other witnessed before.Petition here

Campus youth are also adversely affected by a lack of transparency but they have few avenues of talking about it, and the project aims to identify champions of transparency:give them a platform to add their voice through citizen journalism/media.“Campus” students will have an opportunity to increase their awareness on corruption risks, corrective actions and milestones/success stories and also influence others by collecting and sharing human interest stories of how corruption has affected the society and above all tell positive stories that will trigger social behaviour change.
