COVAW, is non-profit making National Women's Human rights organization registered in Kenya under the NGO Coordination Act.
Since inception, COVAW has continued to be instrumental in placing violence against women as a crime and a human rights violation and has spearheaded the campaign towards women having the right to be free from violence, the right to self defence and the right to state protection. COVAW believes that people have the capacity to learn and change their attitudes towards women. COVAW beneficiaries are therefore women and girls.
COVAW is committed to breaking the circle of violence and silence around it. To achieve this we work at the regional, national and community level towards empowering women and girls to claim their rights, improve quality service provision to enhance access to justice, and build change agents opposed to and committed to eradication of all forms of violence against women. We recognize that violence can be physical, sexual, psychological harm, including threats, and that violence against women is both a consequence and a cause of gender inequality.
