for general operating support
Open Institute is a Kenyan civil society organization that works with government institutions, citizens, and grassroots groups to promote responsive governments and active citizenship. Open Institute works in three Kenyan counties to engage government officials and community elders in the design and implementation of county statistical units to monitor progress toward development goals.
for support to the Global Goals for Local Impact project
The Global Goals for Local Impact project, coordinated by the Open Institute, will inform Kenyan citizens in six villages about their government’s commitments to the Sustainable Development Goals, and facilitate citizen engagement in the prioritization and implementation of development policies and public services. The project builds on a 10-month pilot in Lanet Umoja in north Nakuru County, which increased citizen engagement and local government responsiveness to the demand for clean water.
