STAI – Student Tax Advocacy Initiatives

Under the programme, CEDSI was engaged as student tax advocacy initiative STAI replicating partner in the establishment of student tax advocates for tax in abia state. This programme covered 20 secondary schools in the state.

A major aspect of the field project was street and market rallies in Aba and Umuahia during which the citizenry and market men and women were massively sensitized on the imperatives of voluntary response to tax payment   obligations as it is the surest and sustainable source of funding government to discharge it constitutional responsibilities to the people.

The first year of this intervention involved the coverage of 20 secondary schools across the state.

Feedback received thus far points to the fact that the program is achieving its core objectives.
