We are inspired by the principle that accessible, quality and responsive public services are a constitutional right – under the Bill of Rights Chapter and related provisions of the Constitution– and, a result of good practice of open governments whose realization is a shared responsibility of citizens and governments. This informs our partnerships and collaborations.
Our partnerships with stakeholders within and outside the government are inspired by shared passion and desire for responsive public service delivery. To deliver on our mission, we work with community organizations and public finance institutions to promote accountable and responsive budgets and policy priorities across our thematic areas.
