NGO fed­er­a­tion starts na­tion­wide aware­ness cam­paigns on reg­u­la­tions

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

The na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of Pub­lic Ben­e­fits Or­gan­i­sa­tions is col­lect­ing the views of the more than 10,000 PBOs on the im­ple­men­ta­tion of new in­dus­try reg­u­la­tions. “The board in­vites all sec­tor part­ners to pool re­sources to help meet the chal­lenges of im­ple­ment­ing the Act [PBO Act 2013] to at­tain com­pli­ance within the sec­tor,” chair­man Stephen Che­boi said. He said aware­ness and par­tic­i­pa­tion of all stake­hold­ers will help in the tran­si­tion from the NGO Coun­cil of Kenya to the fed­er­a­tion, which was pro­posed by the new law. Che­boi said the fed­er­a­tion will call re­gional fo­rums to en­sure par­tic­i­pa­tion. “The NGO Coun­cil wishes to in­vite and en­cour­age the en­tire PBO sec­tor in Kenya to en­gage with rel­e­vant in­sti­tu­tions both at na­tional and county lev­els,” he said. “Self-reg­u­la­tion means di­rect in­volve­ment of every reg­is­tered PBO in Kenya in the ac­tiv­i­ties of the na­tional fed­er­a­tion.”
