Description


This project is part of Canada’s Women’s Voice and Leadership Program, which supports local and regional women’s organisations and networks that are working to promote women’s rights, and advance women’s empowerment and gender equality in developing countries. This is done by supporting activities, building institutional capacity, and promoting network and alliance-building as women’s rights and feminist organizations are critical agents of change. The Program also responds to the globally recognized, significant gap in funding and support to women’s rights organizations and movements around the world. The project, implemented by CARE Canada, supports approximately 120 women’s rights organizations across Kenya. The project helps them improve their structures, programming and capacity to deliver quality services in order to promote women’s and girls’ rights, and equal opportunities for all. It also strengthens the effectiveness of women’s rights platforms in Kenya.
