The Open Extractives programme is focused on finding innovative ways in which citizens – particularly small-scale artisan miners could be visible and better be involved in policy creation.

All policy decisions are mainly influenced and discussed by government, large Civil Society Organisations and large Companies. Citizens are often invisible in these engagements.[/vc_column_text][nectar_video_lightbox link_style=”nectar-button” nectar_button_color=”Default-Accent-Color” video_url=”https://youtu.be/1ubwMPef_Zc” link_text=”Watch Video”][social_buttons][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom”][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/2″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_custom_heading text=”Strengthening our programmes and tech teams, with new energy” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:30|text_align:left|line_height:1.5″ google_fonts=”font_family:Montserrat%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1557991755297{padding-top: 1% !important;}”]As our work increases and becomes more focused, we are happy to grow our team even more. Ivy Gathu has joined us as the new Programme Officer, who will provide more support in coordinating our various programmes and activities. Esther Njagi is our new Data Fellow and is seconded to the Council of Governor‘s to support the Maarifa Centre. Felicia Mtoka has joined our tech team as a developer, particularly for mobile applications. She joined after a recent exhaustive search for lady applicants in that position – and she emerged the best.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/2″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_gallery type=”flexslider_style” images=”7171,7165,7162″ onclick=”link_no” img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
