Call for Proposals – Women’s Voice & Leadership Project


About The Centre for Rights Education and Awareness

The Centre for Rights Education and Awareness (CREAW) is a feminist national non-governmental organization whose vision is a just society where women and girls enjoy full rights and live in dignity. For more than 20 years CREAW has continued to champion, expand and actualize women’s and girl’s rights and social justice through advocating for shifts in legislation and policies that promote and protect women’s and girl’s rights, as well as building the capacity of women to demand for these rights.

The Kenyan civic space has been thought to be steadily shrinking over the years and a number of factors have contributed to this status quo. These factors include the enactment of policy and legal frameworks that limit the autonomy of non-governmental organizations to effectively operate, the categorization of Kenya as a middle-income country resulting in the reduction and or reprioritization of funding for interventions that protect, promote and champion the rights of women and girls.

The women rights organizations have been the worst affected with this emerging trend in funding. Many development partners who traditionally directly funded women’s rights institutions have opted for an approach that funds components of women rights work within larger programs and within organizations that are not women led and or women rights organizations effectively reducing the focus on women’s rights work.
