Overview

Through its work on the Fiscal Accountability for Inequality Reduction (FAIR) programme, Oxfam in Kenya aims to influence decision makers to take action on progressive taxation and budgeting processes. It aims to equip citizens and civil society organizations with the knowledge and skills to feed into public finance management processes, including monitoring of spending and the delivery of public services.

A focus on women and girls is at the centre of Oxfam in Kenya’s programming. This case study shows how three closely interlinked Oxfam projects – Wezesha Jamii, WE-Care and Gender-Responsive Budgeting – benefited women at the economic, political and social levels. This holistic approach encompassed many different areas, including economic empowerment, social protection, social norms, unpaid care, political participation and budgeting.
