In partnerships with local government, police, civil society, religious leaders and the community, CREAW, through our programme “Suluhisho Ni Mimi” (meaning “you are the answer” in Swahili), not only provides services to survivors of SGBV but also works to strengthen the response of the legal and health systems and sensitize the community to instances of SGBV through advocacy, media.

Over the past three years, with the support of USAID, our field office in Kibera slum has provided over 16,000 women and girls access to legal aid (including support to claim or reclaim their property rights), psychosocial support and medical treatment through our one stop shop platform.

So successful has Suluhisho Ni Mimi been in increasing community awareness of SGBV, raising the confidence of survivors and reducing incidences of violence that CREAW is looking to roll the program out in other informal settlements in Nairobi and in regional areas of Kenya with identified high rates of SGBV.
