Thirty grassroots women's organizations in Kenya will be made stronger at promoting human rights by participating in training through innovative distance-learning methods.
Grassroots women’s organizations are rarely able to release staff to undertake substantive training, despite the great need. Yet their ability to be effective in promoting and defending their rights and to manage effective organizations is critical for ensuring a culture of respect for rights. This project will enable such organizations to participate in courses such as human rights, leadership and fundraising, while continuing to work in their organizations.
Organizations are supplied with specially designed interactive CD-ROMs and are mentored through their training via e-mail. Training includes exercises, assignments and project work. Participants receive certificates from the University of Oxford.
The growth in Kenya of a culture of respect for human rights; accountable governments; a flourishing civil society and human rights sector of well-trained and resourced organizations.
You can make a difference by helping grassroots women's organizations promote and protect women's rights. Help train organizations to ensure they become vibrant and effective human rights defenders. - Firoze Manji, Director, Fahamu
