FRIENDS OF FIDA

Friends of FIDA are largely drawn from local corporations, businesses and law firms, independent foundations, NGOs and individual well-wishers who are not necessarily lawyers of FIDA Kenya members.

PURPOSE

This is an initiative that brings together friends, families, children, men and women, who not only love what FIDA does but would also like to contribute towards the change we make in the lives of women. It was meant to bring on board men and women who wanted to become members of FIDA but were limited by FIDA Constitution that only allows women lawyers practicing in Kenya to register as members.

It is a gathering of noble minds seeking to support the fight against women that also seeks to nurture young minds into champions of gender equality. Anyone can become a friend
