Our approach

Keiyo Women Trust (KWT) is a not for profit making organization, based in Kenya working towards improving and changing the lives of vulnerable girls and young women in Kenya.

As an indigenous women-led organization, KWT champions the rights of women and girls among indigenous communities through strengthening and supporting their capacity and agency to influence policies, decision making processes, and address harmful cultural practices while promoting positive culture

We focus on addressing structural barriers that prevent or limit women and girls’ exercise of their economic rights as well as to challenge social norms that continue to undermine their role and stifle their potential to thrive.

Our Vision

A society that truly empowers and provides equal opportunities to women and girls to reach their full potential in their socio-political, cultural and economic development. 

Our Mission

We are committed to the reduction of vulnerabilities and all forms of discrimination against women and girls in a democratic society by advocating for their rights, advancing their capacities to lead, organise and tell their story and influence gender sensitive polices.

Our Values

Our actions are guided by our values. Our guiding values include: Integrity, fairness, empathy, non-discrimination, transparency and accountability.
