Who we are

A group advocating for the empowerment of women with skills

VIPEP is a non-profit organization in Kenya that seeks to promote the development of adolescent girls and young women in rural communities through trainings, discussions and mentorship programs

Our Programs

She Goes Digital

She goes digital is a program that seeks to bridge the gender digital gap by equipping adolescent girls and young women from the rural parts of Kenya with modern digital skills that are relevant to them, as well as providing access to digital devices and internet connection through hubs. So far, we have one digital hub in Kakamega County and have trained over 409 girls and women through the hub.

Mwanaume wa Power

Mwanaume wa Power is a Swahili word that means “Men of Power”. We believe that powerful men are those that support women’s rights and believe in equity of both genders.

This project is born out of the fact that it is impossible to achieve gender equality without working closely with men. This is because men and women are very much interconnected. The actions of men affect women directly, and the actions of women affect men directly. In the spirit of our values and philosophy of being impact driven, this project is a program or summit that seeks to empower men on various aspects of gender and gender inequality to inspire them to be gender equality advocates in the society.

Upon completion of the summit program, the men get to sign a MWANAUME WA POWER PLEDGE, and they officially become Mwanaume wa Power ambassadors in their communities. VIPEP will work hand in hand with them to offer them support to initiate projects that seek to empower more boys and men to be gender equality advocates and also to speak out against issues affecting women in the society.
