CRECO CIVIL SOCIETY OF THE YEAR AWARDS 2013

CRECO is a member organization of the Kenya Civil Society Competence and Sustainability Program (KCSCSP) “Viwango” and as a consortium seeking to strengthen civil society organizations through providing leadership in excellence and self regulation, CRECO sought to recognize the important role civil society organizations play in the democratization process in Kenya.

In pursuit of its mandate to support and promote its members and in furtherance of the ideals of the National Civil Society Congress as an implementing partner, CRECO Conceived the Civil Society of the Year Awards (CSOYA) as a mechanism to gauge status of its members and inspire their desire for growth and change. CSOYA serves to ensure that organization get the much deserved appreciation for what they are doing. The Award therefore seeks to bring to light the work and strength of CSOs by recognizing and awarding them. The award falls under CRECO’s thematic area of Institutional Building.

The CSOYA Awards have now run for seven years consecutively awarding civil society organizations and community based organizations in the Democracy and Governance Sector for their exemplary work and to encourage them to seek self regulation towards achievement of their objectives. The first two rounds of the awards provided lessons that helped improve the 2009 process. Given the nascent nature of the programme, it experiences structural challenges which nevertheless, were sources of learning on how to improve subsequent award activities.

Below is the list of winners for the Civil Society of the Year Awards 2013.
