Jua Jimbo Project
Jua Jimbo project (i.e. know your county project) under thematic area Democracy and rights is being implemented in Kenya across four counties.
The Project seeks to increase community influence and “enhance community ability especially those that are voice poor and marginalized to have democratic influence on governance at the incoming county governments.”
Jua Jimbo project targets to influence two spaces; the demand (right holders) and supply (duty bearers) side of governance. In the long term, Jua Jimbo envisions counties that promote good governance and facilitate citizen participation.
All the activities of the Jua Jimbo projects aim at ensuring that the ‘voice poor and marginalized communities in the targeted counties are jointly engaged with their leaders in county development processes, and that there are ‘accountable county governments that are influenced by voice poor and the marginalized communities in their decision making processes’.
