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 level 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 is implementing a wellness programme, The Wellness Resilience Resource Hub comprises places, processes and spaces for individuals and collective civic actors (Civic Catalysts – Whether currently active or in retirement and their immediate families. Civil Veterans – Retired from frontline engagement as civil activists but who have been civil society actors in one way or another for a significant time. Civil Thinkers – people working on intellectual projects on civil society.  Civil Supporters – Institutions and or individuals who invested in supporting civil Activists as their own contribution) to rest, reflect, heal, learn and invest, far from the stressors and pressures of organizing and agitating. The Wellness Resilience Resource Hub is being facilitated by Inuka Kenya Ni Sisi Ltd, Uganda National NGO Forum and the Legal and Human Rights Centre in Tanzania. 

Why the Wellness Hub?

The civic actors in the Region (Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda) have been instrumental in bringing about robust citizen activism, sadly they continue to endure trauma resilience from their activism even decades later. The range of resources, opportunities and spaces available to them to meet their needs has also changed considerably. In the past, civic catalysts have come under all manner of attacks, putting their physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health at risk to the point of endangering their very lives. Some have endured detention, imprisonment and even been forced into exile. Others have found themselves ostracized by society, maligned, discredited, bankrupted and/or forced to undergo punitive legal suits, all with the aim of punishing them and thus deterring them (and others) from doing this work.
