Mental Health is HEALTH!
Bonga Na Dada!
CHADALA has created a safe space for young LBQ women where they can freely meet and share their lived stories and experiences affecting their mental health. Through our #BongaNaDada platform we've been able to offer psycho-social support to several of our rights holders. #MentalHealthMatters #MentalHealthMatters #MentalHealthForALL
End SGBV NOW!
There's NO EXCUSE FOR ABUSE!
CHADALA champions for an end to SGBV with a focus on young women and girls in their diversity who are targeted due to sexual orientation, gender identity and expression (SOGIE). Cases of corrective rape, forced marriages, unintended pregnancy, domestic violence, blackmail, possible forced eviction, unlawful arrest targeting the vulnerable young women and girls have been recorded over the years, with very little or no justice served to victims and survivors.
Whenever you work with us, you can trust that you’re in great hands.

The joy of Christmas is sharing😊. Thanks to your kind donation we were able to donate *10 CHADALA Xmas Food Baskets* and Dignity Kits, to 10 Teen Mums in Dunga, Nyanza-Kenya. The young mums were also taken through a discussion on Postpartum Depression and how best it can be managed. CHADALA is looking at starting a liquid hand soap making program to benefit the vulnerable girls, the soap will be sold both locally and internationally with the help of our already established networks. This will help the young mums achieve their sustainability goals.Kindly donate:1. Dignitary Kits2. Diapers3. Clothes4. FoodTogether let's #SupportTeenMums in rural Nyanza,Kenya

Chanuka Sasa, Okoa Dada Campaign!
Sexual minority women continue to face violence, stigma and discrimination from loved ones and the society at large. CHADALA advocates for the rights of sexual minority women living in the rural and informal settlements, who are unlawfully violated, misrepresented and are less informed about their fundamental human rights. We need a safe, more empowered and inclusive world free from violence, stigma and discrimination due to actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). It's time to #BreakTheBias👇
Our Security Matters!
Through our intervention, CHADALA has documented several life-threatening safety and security cases, which happened pre, during and post election period and had not been reported or shared by the victims due to fear of possible attacks. In our mapping out, we managed to empower over 50 young LBQ womn of ages 18-30 years, living in the rural and informal settlements of Kisumu County where the safety and security of young LBQ womn still remains a major concern. As per our assessment, it's evident that most of the vulnerable young womn are less knowledgeable of the Kenyan Constitution and their fundamental human and women’s rights. The mapping out was done with the support of the already empowered participants who attended our #UsalamaWaDada trainings/forums.
