Who we are


We are a movement that seeks to promote citizen empowerment and government accountability in Kenya with the aim of helping Kenyans fulfill the promise of constitutional reform.

Since the adoption of Kenya’s 2010 Constitution, we have sought to advance the Constitution’s central principle: transforming the way power in Kenya is distributed and managed, chiefly through the devolution of government power from the national to the county (sub-national) level.

Our Vision

Empowered citizens claiming their rights and holding service providers accountable for effective performance.

Our Mission

To help Kenyans find their voice and agency to claim their rights to services; make the Kenyan government accountable for its duties and promises; and make the constitution a lived experience.

Our Goal

To institutionalize a sustainable culture of social inclusion in the Kenyan society, through inclusive policy frameworks and budgetary decisions, to the realization of inclusive governance (voice), and the accountable and equitable distribution of resources.
