The Equal Rights Trust has been involved in promoting improved protection from discrimination in Kenya since 2009. Our work involves empowering civil society to campaign for the adoption of equality legislation, supporting organisations working for Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) persons and improving access to justice for victims of discrimination.

Highlights of our impact include:

In early 2015, we conducted in-depth interviews with women who have been affected by Kenya's gender discriminatory nationality law before the law was reformed in 2010. These interviews were used as part of a comparative study involving research in several countries - we published our findings in My Children's Future: Ending Gender Discrimination in Nationality Laws.
