The ‘Rallying Efforts to Accelerate Progress (REAP)

The ‘Rallying Efforts to Accelerate Progress (REAP)’ aims to curb wealth and income inequalities by addressing its root causes such as illicit financial flows, inadequate access to public resources by vulnerable groups as well as limited social accountability. This is geared towards having a strengthened social accountability over policy and decision-making to reduce income and wealth inequalities whilst promoting greater access to public resources by vulnerable and marginalized groups in Kenya.

We strive to generate greater evidence on the impact of illicit financial flows, tax evasion and avoidance across all the seven regional economic blocs in Kenya including the East Africa Community region.

The project also seeks to strengthen the capacity of local Community Based Organizations (CSOs) alongside that of women and other marginalized groups to oversee the award of tax incentives, public funds spending, and contribute to public policy.
