CENTRE FOR RIGHTS EDUCATION AND AWARENESS

The Centre for Rights, Education and Awareness (CREAW) is a registered, non-profit women’s rights organization founded in 1998 by several women lawyers who had common goals and a shared purpose to confront the low awareness of women’s real needs and rights in Kenya.

CREAW envisions a transformed and just equal society and its mission is to champion, expand and actualize women’s rights.

CREAW’s programs are thus anchored on enthusiastic lobbying and advocacy to support the interest of the constituents- the women and children of Kenya.

In the theory of change, CREAW believes that social transformation can happen through a shifting of social norms and practices that curtail the realization of women’s rights. This is done through legislative and policy advocacy, activism, public awareness, public interest litigation and innovative research. The desired change should be evident in attitudes, knowledge, skills, and levels of awareness, behaviour and health at personal, family, communal and societal levels.

In CREAW’s views, change requires a catalyst. As that catalyst, CREAW sees its role as lying in: Civic engagement, mentorship, dismantling patriarchy, seeking accountability at all levels, awareness raising, working through smart networks and movement building, broadening and deepening knowledge, inclusiveness and constant innovation.

CREAW’s values are based on one fundamental principle of “Love’ actualized through its values:- Integrity, Professionalism, Passion, Innovativeness and Synergy.

CREAW mainly works around the Access to Justice for disadvantaged women, Policy and Legislative reforms, Governance and Leadership and Economic empowerment of women. As such CREAW’s functions are to:

  1. Create public awareness and sensitize society on women’s rights; to respect, defend and uphold women human rights as well as promote equal rights of women.
  2. To promote the opportunities for women in the political and educational fields as well as in industry, business and in their professions.
  3. To generate new knowledge through innovative research and to reform policy and debate on women human rights
  4. Strengthen institutional capacity to perform its functions.

Physicians for Human Rights (PHR)-Program on Sexual Violence in Conflict Zones

Aim to increase capacity for the collection, documentation, preservation and utilization of forensic/court-admissible evidence to support prosecutions and reparations for sexual violence crimes, through:

  1. Cross-sectoral, collaborative training for members of the health care, law enforcement, and legal sectors, where we
    1. train medical practitioners in the collection of forensic evidence of sexual violence, including documenting health consequences, assuring appropriate treatment, and supporting legal assistance and advocacy;
    2. provide forums for essential cross-training and professional collaboration between health, law enforcement and legal practitioners in serving survivors’ needs; and
    3. connect members of the health, law enforcement, and legal sectors to facilitate informal regional support networks among stakeholders working to combat sexual violence

  1. Advocacy for national and international reforms addressing the political, legal, social, and cultural obstacles that derail efforts toward prosecution of sexual violence, including through research to inform policy and legal reforms.

  1. Support to international and local legal processes in their efforts to prosecute perpetrators of widespread sexual violence and mass atrocities e.g. PHR is co-petitioner in an ongoing public interest litigation case pursuing accountability and reparations for survivors of sexual violence committed during the 2007/08 post-election violence.
