Strengthening accountability and transparency processes in the governance and management of Basic Education in Kakamega County is a one year phase project by SPEAK, a National nongovernmental organization based in Kenya. The project's overall objective is to strengthen Accountability and transparency processes in the governance and management of Basic Education.
First is the lack of a transparent and accountability culture of governance both at ECDE and primary school sectors. The management of basic education has in the past witnessed poor decision being made due to poor implementation of policies and legislations. Secondly is the lack of County policy and legislative frameworks and legislation capacities. The implementation of ECDE by the county government of Kakamega is faced with legislative and policy challenges.
key activities which include: Inception workshop; Mapping out exercise; Baseline survey on the state of governance of Basic Education in view of transparency and Accountability framework; Consultative and validation forum; Capacity trainings; County policy and legislation capacity workshop; Public forums to Influence County and Awareness weeks through Radio programmes will be implemented
Outcome 1: Increase the capacity of school management committees (SMCs), Board of management (BoM) and parents Teachers Associations (PTAs) to effectively participate in Decision making processes at school level and beyond. Outcome 2: Strengthen the capacity of school administrators, grassroot CSOs, local communities and county policy makers/implementers towards ensuring quality access to basic education in the County.
