The Center for Social Responsibility and Accountability (CESRA) is Kenyan most independent and assertive charity watchdog.
At CESRA We consider communities as a place in the hearts, and in the hopes, of those who live there. Communities are about connections, commitments, Common sense and the common good. We support those ideas, and the people who put them to work.
