The SRHR Alliance in Kenya is a coalition of 17 civil society organizations and institutions working to promote the sexual and reproductive health and rights of young people and women in Africa, Asia and the Europe. The alliance was first established in the Netherlands in 2010. In Kenya the alliance brings together 17 organizations comprising of Africa Alive (AA), AMREF Health Africa, Anglican Development Services (ADS) Nyanza, AYARHEP Centre for the Study of Adolescence (CSA), Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), Child Line Kenya (CLK), Family Health Options Kenya (FHOK), Great Lakes University of Kisumu (GLUK), Kisumu Medical Education Trust (KMET), Nairobits Trust, Network for Adolescence and Youth of Africa (NAYA), National Empowerment Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya (NEPHAK), Support Activities in Poverty Eradication and Health (SAIPEH), World Starts With Me Alumni Youth Advocacy Network (WAYAN Kenya), Women Fighting AIDS in Kenya (WOFAK) and UNESCO.
The Alliance has provided a great platform and an opportunity for national and international advocacy. It has offered leverage on resources and expertise to do better programming and a framework for fundraising to partners by mobilizing funds from local and other sources. Working in an alliance has been affirmed as an effective way to have a bigger voice/influence in advocacy and also in fundraising. It has added value to the profile and work of the individual organizations; complimenting their individual strengths and weaknesses. This partnership has further enabled member organizations to share strategies, align objectives and resources, and agree on interventions to achieve more together than they would have been able to achieve individually.
