The organization’s work is advanced through feminist and transformational leadership development, feminist research and knowledge building, and policy influence and movement building.

They will provide political, socio-economic and contextualised expertise and knowledge in our programmatic areas, help grow AMwA’s networks, and support in conceptualising and implementing activities that align with the organization’s political mission, vision and long-term strategy in Kenya.
