CSO code of practice
The Kenya Code of Practice is one booklet in a series of three designed guide the work of CSOs. The three booklets should be used together. The other two booklets are: the Kenya Code of Standards for Competence, Integrity and Sustainability; and the Kenya CSO Organisation Self Assessment Tool.
