Wajibika, which means, “be accountable” in Swahili, is a systemic civic advocacy organization established in 2013. It is envisioned on realization of a Better Society for All. The mission is to strengthen governance and public accountability systems. Strategically, Wajibika promotes good governance and accountability in human rights perspective through evidence-based advocacy.
Our remit is to influence cross-sectoral systemic change through social accountability initiatives on areas around human rights, civic engagement, democracy, environment, economies and the essential public social service sectors of education, health and water. In achieving that, four programmes were envisaged; the Social Service Governance Programme (SSGP), Human Rights and Social Protection Governance Programme (HSGP), Civic Engagement and Democtratic Governance Programme (CDGP), and the Environment and Economic Governance Programme (EEGP).
These programmes were essentially designed to complement efforts attested in number of global, regional and national policy frameworks. Ranging from the National Development Plan 2025, Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (SDGs) and the African Union 2063 Agenda.
In the course of implementing the strategy, the programmes engage rights holders, duty bearers, policy makers and oversight bodies. Such a diverse engagement ensures public credibility, collective actions and sustainable development for a better future.
