What we do

We empower citizens and government employees to act on corruption experienced in their everyday lives. Using a mobile phone with Internet access, anyone is able to check the amount of government money pledged to each school and health clinic – and the amount actually spent. By exposing which institutions and individuals are involved in corruption and providing the data to journalists and activist groups we hope we can make corruption less attractive.

Our Story

Why? Corruption is an ingrained behaviour - this must be taken into consideration. In order to change this attitude, we need to cooperate with civil society, media, government and the international community. Government should be an active partner from the very start, just as the community. Focus in the community should be on citizen monitoring, using wiki solutions, rather than relying too much on whistle blowing.
Health Sector

Health sector

The Health Sector in Kenya is a shared function between the National and County Governments.The National Government is charged with developing a Health Policy and management of national referral health facilities while the County Governments are charged with the provision and management of health services at the county level. The A4T project focuses on enhancing public participation in monitoring the use of public resources allocated to the health facilities in Nairobi County.

Health Sector

Education sector

The Education sector in Kenya is a function of the National Government which is charged with the development of policies, curriculum, setting standards and managing education institutions. The County Governments however have a limited function in the education sector in relation to provision of services in pre-primary education and village polytechnics. The A4T project seeks to enhance transparency and accountability in the education sector focusing on funds disbursed by the Government for the provision of free primary education at public primary schools.

Participate

Citizen participation in governance and development processes is based on the constitutional foundation which places sovereign power on the people of Kenya. It is this power that has been delegated to state actors at the national and county levels. This sovereignty must be respected and institutionalized in all processes of governance including in the Education and Health sectors. Public participation is also one of the national values and principles of governance stipulated in article 10 for which we all have a duty to promote and exercise as patriotic citizens.
