Organisational background

Wangu Kanja Foundation (WKF) is experienced-informed and survivor led feminist non-profit national organization founded in 2005. The organization is domiciled in Nairobi Kenya but has footprints in all the 47 counties in Kenya. The organization was founded by Ms. Wangu Kanja, an experienced Human Rights Champion, with 18 years’ experience in the field of gender and development. The challenges she faced after a sexual violence ordeal and particularly in the quest for justice in Kenya, were instrumental in the establishment of WKF. The organisation focuses on addressing sexual violence with regards to prevention, protection and response. At the core of WKF’s work is addressing the needs of survivors of sexual violence in Kenya and beyond by engaging in holistic interventions with an aim of restoring their dignity and that of their families and friends.
