CSOs advocate for the inclusive distribution of government palliatives ©

The Albino Foundation

January 2021

The Agents for Citizen-driven Transformation (ACT) programme helped civil society organisations (CSOs) to mobilise quickly to bridge a gap between government and citizens in the delivery of the COVID-19 response in Lagos state.

With ACT support, CSOs grouped together in a coalition to collectively monitor, track and engage the Lagos state government on the implementation of the COVID-19 stimulus fund and to advocate for transparency and inclusive access to the government services provided. A significant effort was made to ensure that the distribution of palliatives was inclusive and facilitated the representation of women, people with disabilities and others significantly affected but often marginalised from decision-making. ACT provided a small grant and technical assistance to implement the advocacy campaign.
