NGO Jobs in Nairobi Kenya - TJN

About Us: The Tax Justice Network - Africa (TJN-A) is a Pan African initiative and member of the Global Alliance for Tax Justice. 

TJN-A was established in 2007 at the World Social Forum in Nairobi and aims to promote socially just, democratic and progressive taxation systems in Africa. 

It advocates for pro-poor taxation systems and the strengthening of tax regimes to promote domestic resource mobilization.

TJN-A aims to challenge harmful tax policies and practices that favour the wealthy and those that aggravate and perpetuate inequality. 

One of the main purposes of the initiative is to mainstream tax justice in the economic policy and development discourse in Africa. 

TJN-A provides a platform dedicated to enabling African researchers, campaigners and policy makers to cooperate in the struggle against illicit capital flight, tax evasion, tax competition and other harmful trends in tax policy and practice. 

East African Tax and Governance Network The East Africa Tax and Governance Network (EATGN) was formed out of a process that started in late 2009 and has since expanded to include 13 member organizations1 with the initial aim of increasing stakeholder engagement and public debate on tax and governance issues in Kenya and across East Africa. 

The overall goal of the network is to “contribute to a just, transparent and citizen-driven tax system that promotes equality, participation and accountability in East Africa”. 

Since inception, the Network has engaged on a number of tax issues mostly in Kenya; through conducting research and carrying out follow up advocacy activities targeting different stakeholders including policy makers in Government, Legislators in the East African Region, the media and the public.
