Uraia has partner organisations undertaking projects with financial support from Uraia at the county, regional and national level in Kenya. County implementing partners undertake projects in the county where they are based, and have a physical presence. Regional implementing partners undertake projects in two or more counties in close proximity to each other. A regional implementing partner has a physical presence in one of the counties in which it is operating. National or strategic partners have a comparative advantage in their field of work and a demonstrable expertise of working on national issues for over five years. Uraia implementing partners are sourced through periodic calls for proposals which will be communicated through our website.
