For nearly 50 years, the Aga Khan Foundation has been partnering with communities, governments, and the private sector to harness the best from people from all backgrounds to improve the quality of life. The Foundation’s work is rooted in core values of self-reliance, pluralism, and respect for human dignity. AKF is a member of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), one of the world’s leading poverty solutions networks. AKDN makes long-term investments, builds permanent institutions, and cultivates an active civil society, impacting tens of millions of people annually in 30 countries. Alongside its sister AKDN agencies, the Foundation implements innovative, community-driven solutions that are based on decades of experience, evaluation, and learning.
The USAID and AKF co-financed the Yetu Initiative since 2014, contributing to the self-reliance of Kenyan civil society by building the capacity of Kenyan civil society organizations (CSOs) to engage and catalyze citizen support for their missions. USAID and AKF are both looking to further expand and support civil society in Kenya, through the Kaunti Kuimarisha Uendelevu – Strengthening County Sustainability – Annual Program Statement (APS). The goal of Yetu extension is to “Enhance capacity of Kenyan civil society to catalyze and engage citizen, government and private sector support for county-level development”. Yetu will strengthen the role and capacity of county-wide Local Development Organizations (LDOs) existing local Kenyan entities, and local governments to foster ownership, locally-led development and implementation of sustainable development programs. Yetu will also build the capacity of LDOs and county-level CSOs in community philanthropy to build assets, capacity, and trust in addressing local development and sustainability of local civil society.
