In Kenya, the Wezesha Dada Inua Jamii (Empower a Sister) campaign uses the power of storytelling through various media platforms to share insightful and inspiring stories of women and men who are bringing positive change to the lives of Kenya’s women and girls. This includes working with the country’s largest media houses to air inspiring pieces every week on gender issues. The campaign aims to increase public conversation and inform policymakers and government leaders to take action and allocate more resources for necessary laws, policies, and programs. This initiative comes at a critical time, as the country looks beyond the Millennium Development Goals into the post- 2015 development goals.
The campaign launched in March 2015 in Kibera, Kenya.
