Our theory of change is informed by our mission vision and values and guided by our strategic objectives and expected outcomes. Through our programmes, we foster dialogue, reflection and debate to empower citizens to harness and channel their demands to duty bearers and develop the capacity of leaders to improve performance and effectiveness of policies and programmes. We believe that empowered leaders are able to respond to citizens' demands and needs. Working on both fronts, that is, empowering leaders and citizens, triggers a vertical and horizontal demand and accountability mechanisms (supply) which results into efficient and effective government as well as improved service delivery and sustainable livelihoods, leading to inclusive, sustainable and prosperous societies.
