In partnerships with United Nations agencies and local Kenyan organizations in Kenya, KIF Kenya is committed to support and promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through our projects in Kenya.
About Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". The SDGs, set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and intended to be achieved by the year 2030, are part of a UN Resolution called the "2030 Agenda".
About The Nairobi Summit
From 12-14 November, the governments of Kenya and Denmark and UNFPA co-convened the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25, a high-level conference to mobilize the political will and financial commitments we urgently need to finally and fully implement the ICPD Programme of Action. These commitments were centred around achieving zero unmet need for family planning information and services, zero preventable maternal deaths, and zero sexual and gender-based violence and harmful practices against women and girls.
The Summit brought everyone together: heads of state, ministers, parliamentarians, thought-leaders, technical experts, civil society organizations, grassroots organizations, young people, business and community leaders, faith-based organizations, indigenous peoples, international financial institutions, people with disabilities, academics and many others interested in the pursuit of sexual and reproductive health and rights.
KIF Kenya's Involvement
At the Nairobi Summit, KIF Kenya was invited as a VIP by the UNFPA to participate the event for three days and supported for KIF's Chairman Shin Koyamada to introduce KIF's mission, promote past activities in gender equality and make pledges. Chairman Koyamada's pledge was to create a new gender-based violence (GBV) prevention project, which was successfully initiated with UNFPA when KIF and UNFPA signed MoU agreement to partner and collaborate on the GBV.
