Polycom Development Project (Polycom) is a women’s empowerment and girl child welfare organisation, which started in response to the sexual violence and exploitation faced by young girls in Kibera informal settlement in Nairobi.

Polycom reaches out to adolescent girls through schools and women through organised groups. Their work is summarised in one word “G-PENDE” (which means love yourself). They mobilise, organise and develop capacities and support women living in the slums to develop a voice to influence change on matters that affect their lives through sports, economic empowerment and resilience programmes.
