Promoting Women-Centred Leadership & Governance (2)

Promoting Women-Centred Leadership and Good Governance through media during the Electoral Process in Kenya

This project seeks to work with the media to transform leadership within the devolved structures of governance and promote gender equality beyond what it is currently doing. This is going to be important especially in enhancing information flow and creating awareness, building sensitization and education campaigns to change patriarchal attitudes among the various communities. The long term objective of the project therefore is to promote transformative leadership through active participation of women in politics and leadership structures within the devolved structures as well as empowering women to understand their rights in the COK2010. This project is undertaken with support from UN Women

Project Duration: September 2012 - August 2013
