Does FIDA-Kenya only focus on divorce matters?
No, FIDA-Kenya primarily focuses on matters around the family law as these have been evidenced to affect women in a grave manner. We also intervene in land and succession matters child custody and maintenance, family mediation and work with informal justice systems to ensure that women rights are upheld and respected.
We also help women represent themselves in court, in simple matters through our self-representation programme. Further to this FIDA-Kenya also provides individual counseling, group therapy counseling, family mediation and general legal advice.
We work with communities through partnerships with community organizations, conduct community advocacy on women rights and gender responsive law, engage with legislators, Judiciary, nd the Police to ensure that gender responsive legislations are enacted and enforced and monitor government compliance to ratified international laws and treaties on women rights.
