Marginalized girls and women in Kenya continue to be isolated by patriarchy and societal bottlenecks that hold them back from achieving their potential. Fighting for body, health rights and economic empowerment is one of the priorities for the modern woman.
By targeting marginalized groups – refugees, people with disabilities and young people from urban slums – we seek to amplify their voices, create safe spaces, strengthen their resolve and empower them with the skills and resources they need to confront social issues.
Our activities are anchored in the three pillars that facilitate social change:
To equip women with the necessary tools and resources to enable them overcome challenges facing them.
To develop education and learning resources that will convert women into grassroots based advocates ready to campaign for policy changes.
To facilitate social change communication that will provoke conversations on thorny issues among communities and community gatekeepers
