Civic Tech 4 Budget Advocacy (CIBA)
We use technology to engage young people to participate meaningfully and effectively in governance and development processes.

In partnership with Uganda Youth Network (UYONET) through Youth Igniting Change funded by OXFAM, NIYETU Youth Programme funded by Plan International and Amplifying voices of young people for effective participation in an accountable youth movement and democratic political processes, we continue engaging the young people to use YGB app to participate in the budgeting process and influence resource allocation towards meeting their real needs and that of their communities in the sectors of Education, Agriculture and Health in the districts of Kampala, Tororo, Alebtong, Arua, Gulu, Kumi, Kamuli, and Buikwe.
