About Making All Voices Count (MAVC)
Making All Voices Count is a global initiative that supports innovation, scaling-up, and research to deepen existing innovations and help harness new technologies to enable citizen engagement and government responsiveness.
Making All Voices Count is supported by the Department for International Development (DFID), U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, Open Society Foundations (OSF) and Omidyar Network (ON), and is implemented by a consortium consisting of Hivos (lead organisation), the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) and Ushahidi.
The aim of Making All Voices Count is a substantial push towards effective democratic governance and accountability. For more information see: http://makingallvoicescount.org/
Over the last five years, Kenya has implemented a programme of devolution reforms aiming to address decades-old inequalities and disparities between regions.
By moving government and service provision closer to the people, devolution is providing an unprecedented opportunity to break the unresponsive and inequitable nature of Kenyan politics, which has consistently undermined accountability in the past.
Making All Voices Count is working to support uptake of the opportunities presented by devolution for more accountable governance in six target counties in Kenya: Turkana, Marsabit / Samburu, Kwale, Taita Taveta, Homa Bay and Makueni/Murang’a.
Partnering with government actors, CSOs, research and technology organisations, our aim is to overcome obstacles to citizen engagement and government response, and to strengthen health, education and public services throughout Kenya.
