About Inuka Kenya Ni Sisi:

Inuka Kenya Ni Sisi! Is a Kenyan grassroots social movement organization founded in 2009 and registered/incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee in 2012. It envisions a peaceful, united and well-governed Kenya with equal economic and social opportunity for all citizens. The organization exists to empower Kenyan citizens to improve their lives and demand good governance as a means to achieve socio-economic growth and equality of opportunity among all Kenyans. It aims to curate a social movement (the Ni Sisi! Movement) that will seek to unite Kenyans to forge a collective identity, drive transformation in leadership and improve maisha — wellbeing — for all Kenyans. To this end, Inuka supports community groups/organizations and collaborates with initiatives at the local, national and regional levels to build capacity and linkages for effective collective action. Inuka Kenya Ni Sisi! philosophy is underpinned by the concept of “dignity before development” — each individual’s inherent dignity must be upheld at all levels of interaction.

Inuka Kenya has developed three strategic objectives which, together, will form the basis upon which citizens at the local level will find their efforts to take charge of their citizenship and governance processes. As such, the three objectives are the key pillars that will support the creation of a Ni Sisi! Social movement.These three objectives are:

Strategic Objective 1: Restructuring the Public Sphere:
To create and curate narratives that seek to restructure the Kenyan public sphere using knowledge platforms, technology products and engaging civic actors and institutions within a framework of Utu.

Strategic Objective II: Enhance Individual Agency, Dignity and Livelihoods:

    1. To harness a collective positive and resilient identity in order to build, protect, restore and
    2. Ensure human dignity for all.

Strategic Objective III: Transition to a National Social Movement:
To transition from a civil society organization – through partnerships, collaboration and membership development, to a national social movement of active citizens who hold governments to account.
