Save the Children

For Citizen-led Assessments And Advocacy In Conflict-affected And Fragile States

Overview
Save the Children United States promotes the well-being of young children and their families around the world, especially the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. This grant will enable the organization to adapt and test the use of citizen-led learning assessments in difficult settings where good data on educational outcomes is currently lacking. With this grant, Save the Children will design an approach for young people whose education has been disrupted by conflict, displacement, or their status as refugees, to measure and raise awareness about the gaps in learning that they and other children experience. Save the Children will document this experience to promote and possibly replicate the use of citizen-generated data to track progress and hold host governments, international organizations such as the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, and donor agencies responsible for service delivery in emergencies accountable for commitments made under the new United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

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)
