Jacinta Victoria talks to Mariamu as she recounts how women like herself have progressively come to ‘have a say’ in Msambweni’s elections, a context where matrilineal organization has historically transformed, while at the same time provides potential space for women to pursue authority over particular social, economic and political relations.

Dream weavers: “Kenya is food secure.”

There are two stories being told about food security. One story says we are food secure and the other says we are not. The stories are being told – and written – by various people with different intentions. There are those who weave dreams, where fiction reigns and happy endings preside. Then there are those who tell it like it is.

What we do

The Gender Component contributes to the transformation of gender relations in Kenya and the region in order to realize human rights for all members of society. Our main focus areas enhances women’s effective political participation, through regional learning, capacity building and mentorship of female leaders, studies and documentation of experiences of women leaders. We together with our partners mobilise strong male constituencies in Kenya to combat and prevent gender based violence and create opportunities for regional cross-learning to champion positive masculinity. By providing platforms for public dialogue this enhances understanding of gendered dimensions of social and political issues in Kenya and the region. We also build knowledge and facilitate discourse on gender diversity.
