Advocates for Social Change Kenya (ADSOCK)

Advocates for Social Change Kenya (ADSOCK) formerly Men for Gender Equality Now (MEGEN) was established in 2001 during a regional Men to Men Conference that was held in Nairobi, Kenya and brought together men from six (6) African countries.  Following the regional conference, ADSOCK set out to demonstrate what a national movement could do, using different methodologies to reach out to men in diverse communities. Our experience helped us to broaden our thinking and look beyond Violence Against Women (VAW) and thus widen the scope of our thinking and engagement. As we interacted with different communities, the intersection between Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV), HIV & AIDS and other social issues became apparent.

Refugee Law Project

The Refugee Law Project (RLP) was established in 1999 to provide legal aid to asylum seekers and refugees in Uganda. This was in response to an extensive research project led by Dr Barbara Harrell-Bond and Dr Guglielmo Verdirame. They found that, despite Uganda’s strong international reputation for providing asylum to refugees, refugees did not always enjoy their rights in accordance with domestic and international law. Since then, the provision of legal aid has been supported by adding a psycho-social unit which provides clients with counselling and referrals on a range of non-legal matters, including sexual and gender-based violence, access to medical care, housing and education. The provision of direct support is complemented by education and training activities.
