NGO Jobs in Kenya - Transparency International

Summary: Transparency International - Kenya (TI-Kenya) is part of the Transparency International group that is a non-partisan coalition of individuals with a shared vision of corruption free world. 

TI-Kenya is an autonomous chapter in the Transparency International movement, a global coalition against corruption with which we share the knowledge and exchange ideas for the greater good of Kenya.

The Humanitarian Aid Integrity Programme (HAIP) seeks to enhance transparency, integrity and accountability in humanitarian aid programmes. 

The HAIP is based on the experience of the TI Secretariat (TI-S) since 2005 in developing research, partnerships and tools to identify and address corruption in humanitarian action, culminating in the publication of the TI Handbook for Preventing Corruption in Humanitarian Operations, updated in 2014. 

These global tools have been complemented by work under TI _Kenya in partnership with key humanitarian actors on the Food Assistance Integrity Study, analysing the humanitarian response to the 2011 drought in Kenya. 

The improved capacity-building and community empowerment mechanisms recommended by this study are being piloted in the Kenya Arid Lands region and being considered for application in other countries in the Horn of Africa.
In 2013, the TI Movement created the Humanitarian Aid Integrity Network (HAIN), under the leadership of TI-Kenya, to implement the HAIP through a network of TI National Chapters. 

From September 2015, the HAIN will carry out a project that will generate evidence-based knowledge of corruption risks and practical solutions in complex humanitarian contexts in Africa and the Middle East. 

Based on country-specific research and comparative analysis of corruption risks in complex emergencies with reduced humanitarian space (Afghanistan, Somalia), countries affected by massive inflows of refugees (Lebanon), and countries affected by large-scale public health emergencies (Guinea), the project will share good practice and lessons learned and develop recommendations and principles to enhance the integrity of humanitarian operations through multi-stakeholder engagement at the national, regional and global level.
TI-S has delegated responsibility for coordinating the operational activities under this project to TI-Kenya on behalf of the HAIN.
