empowering women and girls
Alternative Rights of Passage
Custodians of culture
Our mandate is to ensure women and girls are granted their rights by fighting harmful cultures like Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), Child Marriage and protection of women and children against sexual abuse and domestic violence; and championing for child rights.
The media has helped in our campaigns. When we encounter elusive law enforcers or rogue parents, or when corruption seeks to shut down our efforts to seek justice, the media helps us to go on despite obstacles.
Highlighting these stories in the media has helped bring orders from top-down in ministries whose officers often choke the voices of vulnerable people in the society by being elusive when it comes to such matters.
For years we have been working in partnership with Njuri Ncheke. The Njuri Ncheke uses its authority and influence in the community to fight FGM.
Through its intervention, we were able to burry Jelida in her community’s land. This would not have been possible without its involvement.
