Our desire to strongly promote and support good and responsive governance at both lower and upper levels features in one of our ambitious and promising project known as Chukua Hatua.
In 2010, Oxfam started Chukua Hatua programme to mobilise citizen action in demanding accountability from the state, ultimately resulting in better use of public resources and delivery of quality public services. The programme seeks to build active and responsible men and women who can demand their rights to agricultural, education, pastoral and social services.
The programme is facilitating citizens to interface with their leaders and through this interaction and joint approaches it is expected services will improve. In addition, the programme aims to see effective local governance structures, especially those led by women, that are enhancing citizen participation and engagement in decision making processes and policies that affect their lives. The programme is working in districts of Shinyanga region and Ngorongoro.
