Kenya: Campus for Transparency

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.

We have been featured at the Rising Voices website .We plan to work with university students (public and private) in Kenya through the various representative bodies, clubs and on-line platforms. Most universities in Kenya have internet access, most students owning at-least an internet enabled phones, with digital accessories such as laptops, P.Cs and ipads. Majority are ICT literate and familiar with on-line platforms such as face-book, twitter and word-press. Young people and more so the target group, continue to bear the burden of the cost of a lack of transparency now and in the future. Most are discouraged for fear of unemployment; a broken fibre of humanity and shadows of shattered dreams linger. Focus Group Discussions with them inspired the project as there is a dire need to support their voices for SAY YES to transparency.
