Institute of Human rights and Civic Values overall mandate is to stimulate, facilitate and sustain public discourses and policy debates on the various aspects of social development at County Level; using social policy process not only as an entry-point but more importantly as a platform on which to subject the popular public voice to a democratic processing of social development demands.
The organization works to promote and facilitate effective strategic alliances among member/interested NGOs and CBOs that engage in social development activities.
This is done by organizing workshops and trainings for Citizens on social audit, budgetary issues, governance and the need for participation in these processes. We also disseminate important information to them and take up some of the issues and complain with concerned government agencies. IHRCV also introduces these groups to government officials at County and Sub-County level for better co-operation and collaboration in their work. These groups also work on behalf of the Anti-corruption and Social Watch programmes of IHRCV. We organize ward meetings, which bring together the groups in the particular ward to share experiences and strategies. At the end of the year we have a County assembly to review the work done, share experiences, strategies and plan for the following year.
