Our Partners


The Coalition on Violence Against Women (COVAW) is a national Kenyan not-for-profit women’s rights organization. We are committed to advancing women’s rights; and work towards achieving a society free from all forms of Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG). The organisation was founded in 1995 as a response to the silence of the Kenyan society to addressing VAWG.
The origin of COVAW is traced to a workshop by Women in Law and Development in Africa (WiLDAF), which identified two critical areas that no actor was addressing, which were VAWG and the limited number of women in key leadership positions. The workshop underscored the need to form a coalition that would address these problems, thus the establishment of COVAW. Since its inception, we have focused on the maxim of ‘breaking the silence on VAWG’. We have succeeded in moving the issue of VAWG from the private to the public domain, positioning it as a crime and a human rights violation.
