Grants to this Grantee
for a program to support citizen engagement in the Addis Tax Initiative in Kenya
This grant will enable Save the Children to engage and advocate for donor and recipient country governments to fulfill their commitments to increase domestic revenues under the Addis Tax Initiative and promote greater civic awareness and engagement to ensure effective use of tax revenues. Save the Children will implement this project in selected counties in Kenya to learn about whether and how the Initiative can be leveraged to increase domestic revenues and improve civic engagement in tax issues.
for work on aid effectiveness
Under this grant, Save the Children will advocate for the adoption and institutionalization of U.S. foreign assistance reforms that promote greater accountability and transparency, and foster greater alignment with partner country priorities. Save the Children, together with its colleagues in the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network, will leverage the collective voice of the aid and development community to hold the U.S. government accountable for its reform commitments, and conduct research to provide practical recommendations on how to deepen local ownership of U.S. foreign assistance.
for citizen-led assessments and advocacy in conflict-affected and fragile states
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.
