CONSUMER GRASSROOTS ASSOCIATION
Consumer Grassroots Association (CGA) is an independent, multi-sectoral, non-political and non-profit Association committed to grassroots consumer protection, education, research, consultancy, anti-counterfeits campaign and advocacy on consumerism and customer-care issues.
CGA works towards a fair, just and safe marketplace for all Kenyan grassroots consumers in all sectors of the economy.
Our mandate is drawn from the constitution of Kenya 2010 and other statutes on consumer protection.
CGA is a national association with networks all over Kenya with a demonstrated experience in promoting grassroots consumer protection through policy and legislative work.
CGA runs consumer sensitization programs which target government, private sector, non-state actors and consumers to promote regulatory framework.
We don’t just help resolve disputes but also work to raise standards across the whole industry . Through training, advice and support we help businesses understand their legal obligations to consumers. For our members, making this clear commitment sends a strong positive message to their customers.
If you don’t feel satisfied after going through a retailer’s complaint process, we’re here to help. We can investigate your case, working with you and the retailer to resolve the problem. We’re totally independent, so you can be sure of a fair result. What’s more, if your purchase qualifies for our service, it’s totally free. Ready to start?
