AboutUs

Siasa Place is an NGO formed 2015 that aims to create an enabling environment for women and youth mainstreaming into our body politics.

Our vision is to influence people who normally shy from politics and change their mind sets by highlighting the correlation between politics and day to day living. Active citizenry participation, having an inclusive platform for people with the will to lead, educating on the functions of a leader, and responsibilities of the voters.

Our mission is to inform and engage on how politics directly affects the society through relatable communications.

The focus of our programmes is summed up in 3

People: People/youth driven dialogues both online and offline to enhance the amount and
quality of public participation.

Policy: Documenting and gathering information and developing policies that focus on the youth and young people.

Public Participation: Provide training and skills development to the citizen on avenues for engagement with the county government.

Our Tools

Civic Education

At Siasa Place we are committed to helping the youth to be better educated, informed and knowledgeable on issues most affecting them. We have weekly chats online on important issues on twitter which you can join under #SiasaWednesday and we do lots of meetings in the community in various counties called #SiasaTalks.

SiasaTalks are open, diverse and inclusive forums bringing youth and the public together to discuss everyday issues that affect them and to unpack how these issues are politically related. It is a forum where we educate people on constitutional provisions, such as their right to engage in governance issues and why it is important for them to not shy away from political participation – but in fact to throw themselves into it. Only through citizen participation can we start to hold our leaders to account and strengthen devolution. For devolution to work the people must be involved in the decision-making and oversight functions.

Training and Development - Siasa Place Institute

We at Siasa Place seek to be a trusted and reliable source of information. Also training of selected members of the public on three related pillars - political, social and economic issues - so that they can also train others in their counties.

Research and Policy

Ordinary people within a nation can influence and shape the society they live in. The youth, especially, need to be engaged in shaping the policies that affect them. Policies to do with health and education, employment and agriculture for example but also many other aspects of our life in Kenya. This is because these policies (which are just big ideas around an issue put together as a coherent whole) inform government programs and that leads then to resource allocation.

Therefore, Siasa Place identifies key and important areas that need to be urgently addressed and we formulate policy briefs that can be presented to the legislature (at National or County level) for consideration and inclusion in the drafting process.
