Women Voice and Leadership

The Women Voice and Leadership (WVL) Kenya program aims to contribute to gender equality and the increased enjoyment of human rights by women and girls in Kenya. It is a 5 years grant by the government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada (GAC) and is anchored on Canada Feminist International Assistance Policy (FIAP) which puts gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls at the heart of international development, humanitarian, peace and security efforts.

WVL is premised on the understanding that women and girls cannot enjoy human rights, and that gender equality will not be seen in Kenya without a vibrant, sustained and healthy women rights movement, or without a civil society in which women rights organizations operate as equals amongst Civil Society Organizations (CSOs.)
