UN Jobs in Kenya - 6 Programme Analysts

Vacancy Announcement
Re-Advertisement: Amkeni Wakenya is a grant management facility established by UNDP for supporting civil society organisations working in the area of democratic governance.

Established in 2008, Amkeni Wakenya has supported more than 200 organisations across the country from small grassroots based community organizations (CBOs) to national-level NGOs to engage with national institutions such as Government ministries and Constitutional Commissions in shaping public policy. 

Some of the notable governance processes to which Amkeni Wakenya has contributed include promoting national healing and reconciliation following the 2007/8 post- election violence; Civic education in the run-up to the 2010 Referendum on the Constitution, Civic education on the 2010 Constitution, and civic and voter education on the 2013 general elections and the transition to devolved government.

Amkeni Wakenya has adopted an integrated approach in the form of grants, capacity building and knowledge management.

Amkeni Wakenya’s four- year (2015 – 2018), strategic plan introduces a new devolved phase of the project with the head office in Nairobi and six regional offices across Kenya. It makes implementation of the 2010 Constitution of Kenya the central framework on the basis of which all CSO projects will be supported.
