Unpaid care workshop in Kenya

Our approach to making unpaid care work visible in Kenya uses photographs and videos taken by women members of ‘reflect groups’ in the communities in which we’re working, as well as information (including time diaries) collected through ActionAid International (AAI) and AAI Kenya’s Making Care Visible Programme. The aim of the programme is to help AAI Kenya develop a two pronged strategy:

  • Working with reflect groups to make unpaid care visible through specific policy asks
  • Working with AAI Kenya and their national partners to advocate for policy changes at the national level

These photo-stories introduce the work AAI and AAI Kenya are doing to make care visible in Kenya.
