About Us

Open Governance Institute (OGI) is a non-profit organization incorporated in Kenya. We collaborate with community organized groups and civil society to advocate for and advance delivery of public services.  Research; analysis and innovation are at the core of our budget advocacy work.

We are inspired by the principle that accessible and quality public services is a constitutional right and a good practice of open governments, whose realization is a shared responsibility of citizens and governments. We do this by strengthening capacity of public finance multistakeholder community to identify and link public service gaps to policies and budgets by facilitating evidence-based engagements towards greater alignment of budgets and policy priorities to community right to public services and, developmental needs and preferences.
