This is achieved by providing youth and women with a variety of sustainable livelihood opportunities.

GOVERNACE

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW Desires and intent to establish a strong cornerstone for good governance that will craft and operationalize mechanisms that demonstrate the virtues of transparency, accountability, predictability and participation, as the four pillars of good governance. The World Bank website defines social accountability as “an approach towards building accountability that relies on civic engagement, i.e. in which it is ordinary citizens and/or civil society organizations who participate directly or indirectly in exacting accountability”. On this basis, the proposed initiative reasons out that good governance and social accountability intersect at the core value of accountability, which has been defined as “the imperative to make public officials answerable for government behaviour and responsive to the entity from which they derive their authority”.
