Promoting Urban Governance

The organization ensures that its members who are orphans are given Identity Cards (IDs) and Birth Certificates’ to ensure that they can actively take part in voting and also can be recognized as legitimate Kenyan citizens. Politicians in Kenya are notorious for taking advantage of the frustration of the youths in Kenyan slums. The post-election violence witnessed after the 20007 elections’ is a good example of the youths being incited to murder their fellow poor slum dwellers. In addition, the organization in partnership with other relevant organization/ ministries strives at encouraging the citizenry in the slums to register as voters as well as promoting civic education forums to hold their local leaders: Governors, Senators, Women Representatives, Members of the National Assembly and the members of the County Assembly accountable so as to have a say in policies and decisions that affect their livelihoods.
