Capture3Staff and supporters of The MATCH Fund first met the women and girls of the RCWG in Kenya last year. Here's what one staff member said about the experience: "From the minute I walked in, I knew this wasn't just any women's resource center. There was the goosebump factor right away. Their work is transformational for girls in Machakos." We look forward to sharing RCWG's updates with you throughout the year.

AfricogThe RCWG participation at the Africa Centre for Open Governance’s (AfriCOG) ready or not report launch stems from the commitment by AfriCOg in their contribution to building a new cadre of leadership in Kenya, who are well informed on issues of ethics and governance, especially from marginalized groups. Our alumni were called upon to support the logistical planning and coordination of the launch of their ‘Ready or Not’ electoral preparedness assessment forum report in preparation for the August 8, 2017, general election. The invited alumni got the opportunity interact and network with people from various organizations who were invited to this event.

Mama CashFor the past 5 years, Mama Cash has been a critical partner to the work of the Resource Center for Women and Girls. Being the first International Women’s fund in the world, Mama Cash has not only supported our work financially but has also provided technical and capacity building support to our staff, interns and beneficiaries. We were therefore very excited to welcome Sanne Rezk in Machakos on the 18th June 2017.
