Centre for Rights Education and Awareness (CREAW) is a non-governmental, non-partisan organization based in Nairobi, Kenya. This life transforming organization was set up in 1998 by several women lawyers who had common goals and purpose: a commitment to confront the low awareness of women's real needs and rights in society.
Justice for Liz
Earlier this year 16-year-old ‘Liz’ was reportedly attacked and raped by six men in western Kenya, before being dumped, bleeding and unconscious, in a deep sewage ditch.
Liz suffered a broken back and suffered serious internal injuries from the rape. The three men accused of gang-raping her were ordered by police to cut grass as punishment.
We have been exploring methods of communicating messages about gender based violence. With the help of Kueneza Arts, we've been painting murals with simple pictorial messaging in five locations in Kibera. Our Suluhiso ni Mimi (I am the solution) project is made possible by the generous support of the American people through USAID Kenya.
