Who We Are

Girlkind Kenya is a Grassroots Community Based Organization registered in Kenya, based in Garissa.

Our Aim
Our aim is to make a positive impact in the lives adolescent girls and women empowerment in the rural area.
The organization intervenes on Girls child rights, HIV/Aids awareness, life skills, women empowerment project in rural, Distribution of free Sanitary Pads to keep girls in schools, and Sexual Reproductive Health Services in the community.
Marginalized adolescent girls in rural area face considerable risks and vulnerabilities that affect their educational status, health and general well-being.

We have also programs in gender based violence, with much emphasis on FGM, domestic violence and rape. we have set up a women center in a place called Jarirot through our own initiative, primarily as a base where we train our FGM champions to have their independent livelihoods to  abandon the cut, we are training them in tailoring , tie and dye and beauty therapy through application of hiina, among many other options including weaving , baking , etc.

Apart from this activities , we also do case management on Rape and Domestic violence victims as well as giving psychcosocial support through provision of NFIs (non food items), counseling, and building of referral pathways

I am committed to ending FGM/C not just because of its health effects on the girl child, but also because of its effect on her education and her economic life
