Uraia Trust, was first established as a programme (the Kenya National Civic Education Programme, popularly known as Uraia) and implemented between August 2000 and September 2002 through a partnership of a group of development partners and Civil Society
Organisations (CSOs) ¡n Kenya.

The programme aimed at consolidating a mature political culture ¡n which citizens are more aware of, and fully exercise their rights and responsibilities, as well as participate effectively in
broadening democracy.

Initially, the key focus of Uraia was more on facilitating the engagement of a number of civil society actors to push for reform across a range of key issues such as the constitutional review,
boundaries review and electoral reform among others.

This has since changed to focus on civic engagement to accompany civic education to enable a more holistic and integrated approach ¡n achieving Uraia’s goals and objectives. The aim is to establish a fully owned and operational organisation by Kenyans as per the aspirations of Kenyans.

Uraia therefore seeks to develop the people of Kenya to have a sense of belonging and identity that is shaped by being one people in one nation. In this regard, the programme transitioned from its current state to a new entity, Uraia Trust ¡n line with its Strategic Plan (2010-2014).

In addition, Urala ¡s undergoing a transformation process to become a truly Kenyan organisation
with a corporate personality, capable of perpetual succession and having the autonomy necessary to steer the programme as it deepens its civic education and engagement in Kenya.

It is in light of this that Uraia Trust seeks to recruit high calibre, results oriented and self driven professionals with integrity to take up the following leadership positions:
  • Executive Director;
  • Head of Programmes;
  • Head of Support Services;
  • Finance Manager;
  • Research, Monitoring and Evaluation Manager;
