Save the Children

For Work On Aid Effectiveness

Overview
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.

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)
