Preparations for the 2nd Annual Resident Associations Excellence Awards (ARAEA) are on course.

The awards, organized by KARA, is designed  to identify and reward Resident Associations that have demonstrated exemplary performance in influencing provision of better services and championing the interests of their members. The awards are informed by the fact that Resident Associations play a very vital role in enhancing access to public services and improving quality of life in Kenya yet these efforts are rarely recognized and appreciated. Additionally, there is need to focus public attention on the importance of Resident Associations in promoting structured engagement with the government and improving service delivery in Kenya.
