Capacity Building on Social Accountability Training-YW4A
A capacity building and social accountability training was conducted on 20th and 22nd April 2022 April in Nairobi facilitated by The Institute for Social Accountability (TISA). The WROs and FBOs went through a training designed to empower them with the skills and tools to undertake social accountability as an effective approach to hold governments accountable and to ensure that resources are prioritized well in light of addressing SGBV and young women leadership in their counties.
TISA employed different approaches in delivering the course content to the participants, which included the political education approach to unpack the historical importance of devolution and why social accountability is the crucible that oils the principle of sovereignty as contained in Kenya’s 2010 constitution. Similarly, using the small groups approach, participants were challenged to identify at least three (3) social accountability tools that were most relevant to their work, as well as key proposals they would make during a county budget forum.
Participants were also trained on social accountability tools and identified tools that are relevant to their work, which include the following: Community Scorecards, Social Audits, Budget Analysis Tools and Public Expenditure Tracking Survey (PETS).
