Learn About Who We Are

Citizens Advancement Initiative (CAI] is a non- profit organization established in 2018 to respond to the limited collective engagement of female professionals and entrepreneurs in governance, development and social justice in Kenya and Uganda. Our policy direction, and ultimate accountability is drawn from a five-member board of Directors. Our management is vested in the Executive Director – an officer of the Board, who provides program leadership, implements Board policies and oversees the functioning of the Secretariat. With an office in Nairobi and Kampala, we work in Kenya and Uganda, and aspire to expand to cities of Dar-es-salaam in Tanzania.


Years Working Experience


We understand we have a duty of care in relation to staff, women, and the people we serve. We ensure that we safeguard staff, women, children, and partners from any form of harassment including sexual harassment, abuse, or any other form of abuse of power

Our vision is informed by the fact that whereas powerful special interests’ groups actively engage and influence governance and political processes across the country, female professionals and entrepreneurs are yet to sufficiently harness their collective power to engage and influence governance, promote sustainable development and drive social change processes. We therefore partner with individual professionals and entrepreneurs; and/or through their formations  such as professional association, formal and informal groups to increase their access to tools and resources that enable them to engage, and build powerful movements for this course in the context of Covid 19 pandemic and beyond.
