Welcome to Women's Rights Awareness Programme Website | Karibu!

Women's Rights Awareness Programme {WRAP} is a national, non-governmental {NGO}, non-profit, human rights organization established to identify and educate the community on the causes and effects of gender violence and child abuse, and to offer services that address the needs of abused and violated women and children such as provision of alternative accommodation and related supportive services like legal aid/advice, medical care, trauma counselling, marital counselling, mediation, reconciliation, resettlement and re-integration.

WRAP was registered under the Societies Act as a non-governmental, non-profit making and non-political organization and became operational in 1994; starting off by catering for the needs of abused and violated women and their children. In 2002, WRAP extended service provision to cater for unaccompanied minors whose rights have been violated; WRAP is also registered under the Charitable Children Regulation as a Charitable Children's Institution recognized by the Government of Kenya.

WRAP also addresses itself to the advancement and protection of women's and children's rights through such strategies as research, awareness creation and advocacy/lobbying.

Through research and advocacy, WRAP also strives to:

  • Advocate for the enactment of appropriate legislation, and formulation of appropriate policy;
  • Involve communities in identifying the causes and effects of gender violence and child abuse, and in determining best practices of diminishing violence against children and women;
  • Work with communities to establish sustainable, community-owned GBV-intervention strategies.
  • WRAP also has programmes that target men in need of counselling, troubled marriages {marital counselling}, policy makers {lobbying} and the public-at-large. The programme is managed by an executive arm comprising of the Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer (including their deputies) and a Board of Directors that acts on an advisory level, besides formulating policies and guidelines.
