Civic Education

In 2010, Kenya's legal system changed drastically with the promulgation of a new Constitution encompassing numerous developments, including the entrenchment of human rights and a novel two-tiered level of governance. As a result of this, the need for civic education remains one of the most crucial avenues by which these changes can be relayed to ordinary citizens

IRPA's approach towards civic education seeks to disseminate information to the general public, train trainers responsible for civic education and facilitate platforms for various stakeholders in society to engage in civic issues. IRPA advocates for the participation of ordinary wananchi at the grassroots level throughout Kenya.

Our approach to civic education works with the following goals in mind (1) increasing the understanding of the institutions of our constitution and fundamental values upon which they are founded, (2) the dissemination of skills and knowledge necessary to participate as competent and responsible citizens, and (3) the willingness to use democratic processes for making informed decisions.
