Violences sexuelles au Kenya [Médecins Sans Frontières]

Que peuvent faire les équipes MSF pour leur venir en aide, et les protéger si besoin ? Dans la clinique de Mathare, au Kenya, les portes sont ouvertes 24h/24 et 7 jours sur 7.

Innovations in cash assistance help drought-stricken Kenya
Description: Half of Kenya is affected by severe drought and the government has declared a national drought emergency. The pastoralist Turkana have been particularly hard hit and it is women who often bear the burden of collecting water. With EU humanitarian funding, OXFAM has introduced an innovative way of ensuring access to water for drought-stricken communities. The E-wallet - an electronic card loaded with cash - provides beneficiaries relief when natural water sources have dried up and there’s no cash to buy water. The system has been rolled in Kenya’s Turkana county. Video by OXFAM

Cash assistance for vulnerable families hit by drought in Kenya
Description: Over 3 million people in Kenya face starvation after three consecutive failed rains left almost half of the country’s counties in need of food assistance. Most of the affected populations live in pastoralist lands where livestock is the main source of livelihood. Since the beginning of the year, many families have lost all or almost all of their livestock. In February 2017, the Kenyan government declared the drought a "national disaster" and appealed for international help to deal with the crisis. In an emergency response to the crisis, the European Commission allocated €29 million in funding to humanitarian partners, providing cash assistance for food and providing critical nutrition supplies for infants and lactating women. With part of this funding, the Kenya Red Cross rolled out a cash transfer programme to the most vulnerable people in the arid north, giving out €30 per month to needy families. In recent years, the European Commission in Kenya, while strengthening coordination between humanitarian and development departments, has supported partners to help communities and authorities prepare for and respond to disasters Video by EU

Pamela Reeves with Kakenya Ntaiya ─ Education, Opportunity and Prosperity
Description: Watson Institute Senior Fellow Pamela Reeves hosts a discussion with Kakenya Ntaiya, founder of the Kakenya Center for Excellence in Kenya. Engaged at the age of 5, Kakenya was to participate in a female circumcision ceremony as a young teenager and then be married. But she had a different plan. First, she negotiated with her father and willingly agree to be circumcised -- only if he would allow her to finish high school. She continued her education at Randolph-Macon Women's College in Virginia, and went on to get a PhD from Pittsburgh. She fulfilled her promise to bring her skills and her dreams back to her village, and has built a transformative school and holistic educational program for rural Kenyan girls, all of whom avoid female genital mutilation and child marriage as they get a world class education.
