Hello. We are ISIOLO GENDER WATCH;an organisation formed in 2013 with the aim of bringing forth the voice of a woman in decision making

It comprises of women leaders, youth and persons with disabilities in all walks of life who were derived from the diverse ethnic communities of the cosmopolitan county of Isiolo.

Even with the current provisions in place, a woman must still fight for her space in leadership and make her presence felt through citizen participation.

This is an initiative begun by the women of Isiolo County, having felt marginalised, excluded from leadership positions and the decision making table.

Isiolo Gender Watch hopes to be an interface between the leadership structures and the women, youth and persons with disability in community level in order to make them self-reliant social-economically and enhance political consciousness.
