Grant Size: USD 55,000

Duration: Annual

The National Endowment for Democracy (www.ned.org) annually supports the Parliament Watch Initiative (www.parliamentwatch.ug), CEPA’s flagship programme that acts as an online information portal connecting citizens and citizen groups with parliament. The initiative seeks to promote informed civic engagement with parliament and related democratic processes. Through this grant, CEPA has been able to build online platforms as well as connect to new channels with the intention of enabling the relay of information from parliament to the general public but also create and deliver feedback from citizens to parliamentarians consequently bridging the gap between Parliament and the people.
