The Centre for Enhancing Democracy and Good Governance (CEDGG) is a grass root civil society organisation that works to empower vulnerable and marginalized citizens to claim their rights in local development and governance processes. CEDGG has been in operation since the year 2001 and legally exists as a Non Governmental Organisation. Our head office is in Nakuru Town – Nakuru County, in the Republic of Kenya.
Our programme work covers mainly the mid rift valley region i.e. Nakuru, Baringo and Kericho Counties.The core problem that CEDGG is seeking to address in the society is the low capacity of the marginalised and vulnerable groups to engage with and participate in the decision making processes around the constitutional reform agenda and the development process in general.
