For the love of human rights- Busia HRDs By Immaculate Akello  2/18/2016
The sun is falling reluctantly below the hill ahead of us when a silhouette of a woman flags us down at an obsolete path covered with corn snarled up with tiny plants with bean-like leaves. Below it, four houses built distances apart. The driver pulls the car over before making a steady halt that we receive with a deep sigh of relief. Our faces express a mixture of fatigue, shock and empathy as we come out to talk to the familiar figure standing outside the car.
Selfless service - Kwale HRDs By Lynesther Mureu  2/17/2016

Where we were, and where we are  by;  Beryl Orao 4/21/2015
The nature of the work of a human rights defender demands a lot of confidence and courage. For some, the confidence comes naturally. Yet for others it must be nurtured. One important way of nurturing confidence in the HRDs is by empowering them with knowledge on human rights issues and enhancing their advocacy skills.
Creating cordial working relationships between HRDs, the media and law enforcers by Ruth Getobai 4/20/2015

Police training by;  Samson Omondi  3/18/2015
