Focus Areas

Women's Rights and Governance

Sauti Ya Wanawake Pwani supports women’s and girls’ active participation and the incorporation of their perspectives at all levels of decision-making. Also, support women striving to take up leadership positions and participate in electoral processes.

Peacebuilding, Emergency Handling, And Conflict Resolutions

Ethnicity, religion, the fight over ownership of land, and natural resource control are among the factors that fuel conflict, especially in the coastal region.

Countering Effects of Climate Change

The coastal region is more prone to disasters like drought and floods and thus women are impacted by the effects of climate change. 80 percent of the Kenyan population lives in rural areas and derives their incomes and livelihoods on land and natural resources which are susceptible to changes in climatic conditions.


Gender-Based Violence Against Women

Sauti Ya Wanawake Pwani conducts community awareness meetings/ forums which are a critical opportunity to educate and sensitize the wider community on women’s rights, and the effects of Violence against Women and Girls and rally for their support.

Women Economic Empowerment

Economic disempowered women face challenges of acceptability at the community level, they lose confidence and feel intimidated to speak in public and their views are not taken seriously.

Girls Education And Children's Rights

SYWP works with the community to ensure timely and sustainable enrollments of girls in schools by addressing gender disparities.


Our Mission

Advocating for equity in all spheres of life through working with the most vulnerable populace at the grassroots level for positive social change.


Our Vision

A society devoid of women and children's rights violations for positive social change
