Save the Children

For Save The Children's Work To Help Lead The Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network

Overview
Building on investments in aid reform work over the past six years, this grant will support Save the Children’s elevation of its leadership role in the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network (MFAN), including the agreement of CEO and President Carolyn Miles to serve as an MFAN co-chair. The grant will further strengthen Save the Children’s advocacy and research capacity in two areas: foreign aid reforms that advance transparency and accountability, and the implementation of U.S. government policies that strengthen local institutions and local ownership in developing countries.

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)
