About Us

The Society for International Development (SID) is an international network of individuals and organizations founded in 1957 to foster democratic participation in the development process through locally-driven programmes that strengthen collective empowerment, facilitate dialogue and knowledge-sharing and promote policy change towards inclusivity, equity and sustainability.

The Kenya Dialogues Project (KDP) at SID is committed to creating a public covenant and leadership around four key promises of the Constitution of Kenya namely: Public Participation, Integrity, Equality and Devolution. They enshrine the constitutional vision of a democratic, just, equitable and economically prosperous Kenya. KDP supports active citizenship and responsive governance by building and promoting balanced, respectful and enriching relationships between the public, civil society and government. We create and support spaces for citizens and their leaders to interact in positive, forward looking ways so as to solve shared challenges within shared communities.
