Transforming the society to denounce all forms discrimination and embrace gender equality and human rights.
Advocates for Social Change Kenya (ADSOCK) was established in 2001 and over years, the bedrock of our programming and engagement are centered on community mobilisation, capacity strengthening, lobbying and advocacy activities in promoting gender equality and social justice. We focus more on collective and institutional levels of change by encouraging contextually nested approaches and collaborations to sustainably influence particularly men and boys through policy and practice at community and institutional levels.
This programme seeks to strengthen the capacity of ADSOCK members and the public and to empower them with knowledge and skills to effectively address issues of sexual and gender based violence and the violation of their human rights, to share experiences and use the lessons learnt to reach others.
This is built on the principles of empowerment, participation and inclusion, which are at the core of our mandate and central to human development. This is because we see disempowerment, discrimination, voicelessness, marginalisation and exclusion as major causes as well as results of poverty, conflict and suffering.
ADSOCK endeavors to develop programmes and projects that are moving from discovery to goal oriented and therefore address the needs of the diverse communities that it serves. To this end, the research and development programme is tasked with the responsibilities of conducting baseline surveys, monitoring and evaluation of ADSOCK activities
As the name suggests, this programme was designed with a sole motive of reaching out to survivors of SGBV and helping them to access justice and other comprehensive care and support services that can help them regain their confidence, dignity, healing and productivity. ADSOCK believes that unless people can influence decisions that directly affect their lives
