Established in 2006, the Resource Centre for Human Rights and Civic Education (CHRICED) is a nonprofit organization that uses civics, advocacy, and outreach to mobilize vulnerable and marginalized segments of the population. With this award, CHRICED monitors and advocates for accountability in the flow and use of the Universal Basic Education funds in 50 schools in Kaduna State. CHRICED trains community actors including school-based management committees, parent-teacher associations, school administrators, teachers, students, and traditional and religious leaders to track and report on the Universal Basic Education Commission’s matching grant funding. The project contributes to On Nigeria’s goal of reducing corruption by building an atmosphere of accountability, transparency, and good governance.
