Inua Dada Foundation rolls out advocacy program

The Inua Dada Foundation has kicked off a youth advocacy program to amplify their voices and equip them with skills to create positive change. Dubbed the #InuaDadaVoices, the initiative seeks to help the youth learn how to tackle challenges they see in their communities. “As Inua Dada we seek to support their efforts to address their concerns, especially on matters of Gender Based Violence (GBV). Our advocacy comes at a special time. 26 years since The Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action of 1995- the most visionary agenda for the empowerment of women and girls, everywhere,” said Janet Mbugua, the founder of Inua Dada.

What Generation Equality Forum means for a Kenyan

Today, Generation Equality Forum starts in Paris, France. This is a historical women conference, in this decade, after the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing, China that birthed the Beijing Declaration and the Platform for Action.

The declaration is a women’s empowerment roadmap outlining 12 strategic areas of focus including ending poverty among women and violence against them; ensuring their inclusion in leadership and decision making, promoting their human rights and safeguarding their rights in the media as well as fostering girl-child development.

The France forum, attended by heads of State and government, representatives from international organisations, civil society, the private sector and youth organisations, the leaders and feminists will be reflecting on progress made 26 years later, and conclude with concrete actions going forward.
