We Lead is an inspiring, innovative and far-reaching programme that truly puts young women rights holders in the driving seat, while supporting them to impactful and sustainably advocate for their sexual and reproductive health and rights. We Lead is implemented in nine countries across three continents: Lebanon, Jordan, Niger, Nigeria, Mozambique, Kenya, Uganda, Guatemala and Honduras. In all these countries, young women from four rights holder groups (young women with disability, young women living with HIV, young women affected by displacement and young women who identify as LBTI) will work together in inspiring nationallevel Communities of Action (CoAs).
The Kenyan We Lead COA consists of Dream Achievers Youth Organization (DAYO) and other 8 grass root organizations that are right holder led and right holder serving, working in various counties across Kenya to enhance the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of the four right holders that We Lead is focusing on.
The overall objective of We Lead is to ensure that by the end of 2025, resilient young women with disabilities, living with HIV, affected by displacement or identifying as LBTI, play a leading role in strengthened and inclusive organizations and movements that enjoy increased public support and have convinced duty-bearers and health-service providers to take steps towards implementing laws, policies and practices that respect and protect these young women’s SRHR.
