WHY DADAPOWER?

Kenya’s population is currently approximated at 48 million, 51% been women. In the 2017 elections, women made up 47% of the registered voters. While the country takes pride in now having 3 Governors and 3 Senators elected in the 2017 elections, gender inequality is a major challenge in achieving women’s rights and progress in Kenya.
Across the world, Government interventions are informed by policy, whose agenda is set by those involved in the process. The lack of adequate women’s participation and representation in key policy and decision making processes leads to development projects and programmes that lack inclusivity.

WORD FROM CHAIRPERSON

I will forever treasure the day I received a call from the school Headteacher at Rurii Primary School, thanking the team and I for a mentorship talk with the school’s teenage girls in 2015. To this, she attributed the school having a girl lead in the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) that year, for the first term ever in the school history.

Birthed from a desire to see teenage girls in rural public schools equally enroll and complete school and take up leadership positions as boys, the story of Dadapower’s work has taken a rewarding and promising trajectory.
