Gender and Governance Programme (GGP) III for UNWOMEN (www.gendergovernancekenya.org)

Now in its third phase, the goals of GGP are to ensure that women’s issues remain relevant in the national polity, to support transformative leadership across all levels and tiers of government, and to strengthen women’s leadership within communities and at national levels. Krakow has established a forum for women to discuss citizenship, the new Kenyan constitution and decision-making in the community. Two of these women have since joined local committees that manage water resources and food aid distribution.

Our experiences are documented in a GGP report called Culturally-relevant approaches to gender and governance programming
