Mission Statement

To create partnerships with Civil Society and other organizations to engage with the Governments and International Development Agencies (IDAs) to develop and implement innovative Social Protection strategies and pro­grammes that make a difference in people’s lives in Africa.

The need to enhance ownership and accountability in Social Protection mechanism is paramount to ensuring social justice and equity among the citizenry. A process owned by a people enhances accountability, efficiency and sustainability of a programme and in this case of Social Protection programmes. It is this thinking that informed the Delegates thinking during the Munyonyo Annual Delegates Conference that led participants to aptly come up with the theme for the Peer Exchange and Learning events for 2013. The theme chosen was "Grassroots Participation in Social Protection"
