AAIK Programs in Kisumu County

Local Rights Programs

Local Rights Program (LRP) is an approach through which ActionAid International Kenya funds projects and programmes in a locality. The core strategy for the LRPs is working in partnerships to eradicate poverty.

This partnership involves the local community-based and non-governmental organizations, women, girls, men, and boys in poor and excluded communities, the traditional leadership, local and national government officials, parastatals, the private sector, and any development actors already working in, or willing to work in the LRP. All the above put in concerted efforts to ensure that poor and marginalized people secure sustained improvement in the quality of their lives, through promoting access to basic rights and services.
