Description

PROJECT NAME: WOMEN’S POLITICAL LEADERSHIP

DEVELOPMENT PARTNER: ACTION AID KENYA

YEAR: 2015-2016

The aim of this project was to empower women to be able to claim their political and socio-economic rights. Under this project we partnered with NGEC in dissemination of basic Gender Equality Standards in counties, built the capacity of women aspirants, engaged other stakeholders in advocacy on the 2/3rd gender principle and conducted a research on the status of women leadership.

Lastly we created a platform (Governors Gender Round Tables) for women to demand for gender responsive public services by interacting with duty bearers to share their needs.
