Grants to this Grantee
for a program to support citizen engagement in implementing the Addis Tax Initiative in Kenya  
Save the Children promotes the health and well-being of children globally. In the last grant period, Save the Children succeeded in getting donor members of the Addis Tax Initiative (ATI) to commit to provide funding to civil society and other accountability actors working on domestic tax policy reforms in developing countries. It also successfully secured policy reforms in one county in Kenya that resulted in increased tax compliance among small business owners. In this grant period, Save the Children will engage and advocate for ATI donor members to fulfill their commitment to fund local civil society and accountability groups, facilitate citizen participation in tax policy reforms in two Kenyan counties, and work with the Kenyan Council of Governors to expand this program to other counties. (Strategy: Transparency, Participation, and Accountability)
