Inclusion of Grassroots Leaders in Budget Advocacy impacts positively on the quality of life in Rural Communities

The aim of this publication is to share with colleagues the very positive outcome of a pilot project on participatory budgeting carried out in Ekiti State.
It is published as part of our efforts to document the impact of our work on Civic Engagement and Governance, which was launched in 2010 as the ReclaimNaija Project.
The pilot project was conceived to promote inclusion and address inequality in the work that was being done on budget advocacy and fiscal justice in the country. Over the past 10 years, several civil society organizations have been carrying out advocacy for a more open and accountable budget culture in the country. The pressures have resulted in some openness in the Federal Budget and the Federal Revenue Allocations to the different States and Local Governments.
