FIDA Kenya has been working in Kenya for 30 years and has a wealth of experience in advocating for women’s rights.

FIDA Kenya is a non-profit membership organisation that has provided direct legal services to over 300,000 women. It is committed to the creation of a society that is free from all forms of discrimination against women. This is done through providing legal aid to women, campaigning on legal reform, monitoring the implementation of laws and researching women's rights issues. 

FIDA Kenya has worked to ensure that laws in Kenya take women's needs into account and is working on making sure traditional justice systems at community levels do the same. The organisation has received recognition as a critical partner in community, government, and UN projects. 

Womankind and FIDA are working on a project to increase women’s political participation, access to justice and eliminate harmful traditional practices such as female genital mutilation and early and forced marriage.
