Brief info

Founded in 2020, Stawisha Dada (STADA) loosely translated as ‘thrive sister’ is a feminist human rights organization based in Kisumu County. STADA works to advance the rights of women and girls, and the health of all people.

STADA’s programs and projects are designed to influence change of community members’ attitudes and behavior around issues of gender equality and equity, gender-based violence, and health and well being. STADA therefore uses transformational community-based methodologies in addressing gender inequalities, disparities, power relations and other social factors which perpetuate women’s and children’s rights violations.


What the community says about us

STADA has supported us with both food and non-food items like clothing, and currently constructing for us a latrine. STADA is making wonderful positive impact in our community. I wish them the very best.

Godfrey OtienoChief, Ogenya village

The team at STADA are very warm, co-operative and lively! STADA has been very impactful in their sensitization and community awareness campaigns, through their seminars and workshops.

Catherine OdongiCHV, Kobura

I’m very impressed and encouraged by STADA’s work in empowering and transforming our young girls, most of whom were conflicted and had little or no self-esteem nor confidence before STADA came in.

I greatly enjoy my work at STADA as an office admin. The stipend I receive from STADA has enabled me support my family. I encourage my fellow teen moms not to lose hope, and reach out to STADA.
