About Us

Believe in The Power of Research to Change the Future

AfyAfrika is a women-led, youth-serving community-based organization. We envision a world where healthy and empowered girls and women, are able to exercise their fundamental human rights, and have the opportunity to realize their full potential. This project is at the heart of what we do –providing a local platform for catalyzing and amplifying the social movement to end Female Genital Mutilation, Child Marriage and Gender Based Violence. We support local grassroots organizations to strengthen their social change communications and develop locally-owned strategies, informed by national priorities, to address local contexts and needs.

With over 13 years of experience of working with indigenous communities from Narok County and its environs, AfyAfrika through its current projects, supports Goal 5 of the Global Goals, the elimination of discrimination against women and girls, and Target 5.3 which seeks to end harmful practices such as child, early and forced marriage, and FGM/C by 2030. Key outcomes include: a) enactment of legal and policy frameworks appropriately resourced and implemented; b) provision of appropriate services to girls and women; and, c) increased acceptance of the norm of non-cutting by individuals, families and communities.

AfyAfrika works to break the silence around the issue, provide a powerful and uniting vision for change, share positive stories of change and strengthen the capacity of its members to effectively speak out and campaign against the practice – from within affected communities in the high prevalence areas in Narok County.
