Gender has been a major concern in the world since men and women play an essential role in the development process. FPFK Recognizes that gender equality is vital in sustainable development, that unless women and girls are able to utilize their rights in spheres of life, human development will not be fully realized.
Girls and women in Kenya hold unlimited potential. The barriers that constrain women are multifaceted. Issues like gender-based violence have remained pervasive. Women remain underrepresented in decision-making processes at all levels. Women and girls still spend long hours collecting water and firewood. They have less access to and control over the benefits from land tenure, education, and employment opportunities. Their increased contributions are needed to help Kenya reach their development goals. Through funding from different partners the church is and has implemented Gender Based projects nationally and regionally
Strategically the church is working towards empowering women and girl child in access and control of resources, change attitudes regarding Risky cultural practices, capacity build to advocate and stand for their rights and lobby for girl child rights.
