The work we do is for the Furtherance and protection of human rights for Sexual and Gender Minorities through these Strategic priorities:

1. Violence Prevention and Rights Protection

Drawing on the progress achieved through strategic engagements with key stakeholders and policymakers at both county and national levels with the mandate to ensure the rule of law and access to justice, we amplify evidence-based initiatives to drive policy and practice changes through targeted policy advocacy initiatives, inclusive of participation in county policy processes and budgeting procedures.

Our strong networks ensure active involvement in human rights monitoring mechanisms, including participation in forums to advance dialogues and conduct sensitisation forums aimed at developing inclusive policies that advance the rights of Sexual and Gender minorities. INEND has established strategic partnerships with civic groups and other institutions to garner support for our mission which is formed by an integral part of an advocacy strategy.

INEND’s experience demonstrates that consistent and persistent engagement with targeted stakeholders can contribute to influencing attitudes and expanding allyship. Specifically, our work with Boda Boda riders and other public transport workers is an example of how previous perpetrators of violence against sexual and gender minorities, can have a change of attitude and serve as allies.

 We continue to implement the Boda Boda model and target stakeholders, including influencers, civic leaders, as well as the media for constructive conversations on non-discrimination and equality. 

In addition, we hold information and education campaigns on specific issues that seek to demystify and destigmatize and advocate for the justice delivery chain on issues pertaining to sexual and gender Minorities.

2. Center for Knowledge and Leadership

Through its consistency, focus on attaining results, accountability, and professionalism, INEND has garnered trust amongst various stakeholders, particularly among the SGM communities, and those who support their work. Drawing on this trust, INEND serves as a catalyst and co-convener of LBQ organising at the national level. 

INEND has also contributed to building the movement and growth of LBQ organisations by serving as an inspiration for an effective and well-managed organisation, providing opportunities for exposure to engaging with various stakeholders, as well as providing capacity building in various areas. One of the impacts of this has been the process of designing an experiential learning strategy, that provides long-term training on different approaches to norm shifting and cross-learning.

We continue to Build collaborative efforts of LBQ women and GNC persons’ organizing by amplifying their voices and improving their well-being through Our Voices Consortium.

INEND consistently maintains a connection with the community that we serve and represent through various forms of meaningful engagements ensuring our work is informed by lived realities of Sexual and Gender Minorities in Kenya.

3. Organisational Stability

INEND’s overall organizational health is necessary for effectiveness and ability to achieve our mission and goals.

Due to the context that we work under, INEND needs to maintain relevance and engage on the critical issues related to human rights, sexual and gender minorities thus we seek to strengthen Our institutional foundation by ensuring the effectiveness of systems and structures for accountability and governance structures.

INEND is committed to nurturing our existing staff through fostering skill enhancement and encouraging continuous learning as well as Enhancing staff well-being.
