A just society governed by integrity


To ensure empowerment and gender equity for women and youth in society as encapsulated in the constitution


AMKA conducts various programmes that are in line with our mission and vision and that are geared towards the empowerment of women, youth, girls and PLWDs


One of AMKA'S main objectives is documenting and facilitating publications of creative works by budding women writers. For over 12 years and ongoing AMKA in partnership with Goethe Institut have conducted monthly reading forums every last Saturday of the month. The forums have so far culminated in two anthologies: Fresh Paint Vol I- Literary Vignettes by Kenyan women and Fresh Paint Vol II- Telling our stories into the 21st Century. In collaboration with ABANTU in 2004 we also published " The Other Side of Prison" The books below are available in local bookshops and at the AMKA office at a cost of 500/=

The Other Side of Prison

The book documents the experiences of women in the fight for the second liberation of Kenya during the 1980s and 1990s. It also highlights women's leadership roles in defending their rights, those of their children and of their spouses.
