Human Rights and Legislation

This intensive programme focuses on human rights, legislation and legal issues that impede the realisation of child rights, youth rights and women rights.

Kenya has made major strides in legislative and policy reforms in the realisation of human rights for its citizens. However there is need to fast track the process of implementation to cascade to the local communities.
