Programes & Approach
Over the years, WRW worked with other like-minded organizations to foster and nurture workers organizing and democratic participation. These organizations included the KHRC, LRC, Gender Commission, FEMNET, EQUALITY NOW, FIDA KENYA, HAKI MASHINANI, UFADHILI, KFC, FTA, MPS, ECAS, TRAIDCRAFT and Utz, among others. During our engagement we have been able to take workers’ rights as Human Rights, critique the labor laws, educated workers on their rights and managed to develop a Sexual Harassment policy for the cut flower industry in Kenya. On this, we have been working with the international media to expose unfair labor practices in most industries such as the Delmonte Campaign and Flower Firms Campaign. For the year 2017, WRW has received financial support from HIVOS through the KHRC to implement a Results Based Social certification project for a contract period June 2017 – August 2018.
Our Key Areas of Intervention
We are an association of shop stewards and key leaders in Kenya, created out of a concern that social ethical business practices were not being followed in the industries despite there being voluntary systems of self-regulation by way of audits and labor inspections.
