There is a significant gap in gender representation among the people of Kibera. Women are often excluded and unable to speak out on issues involving their issues in their community. Umande Trust aims to provide a platform for women and other unrepresented people to work directly with local authorities and officials to become more involved in community decision making.
The project has four main goals;
- Empowerment of women to participate in planning processes
- Fostering a more transparent and inclusive governance
- Enhancing interactions between the county government and citizens through ICT
- A platform or movement to drive women issues
