Building a grassroots
women movement in Kenya.

Who we are

Groots is a National movement of grassroots women-led community-based groups (CBOs) and Self Help Groups (SHGs) in Kenya.

Our Mission

To facilitate grassroots women effective engagement in development through movement building, leadership and advocacy.

Data stories

GROOTS Kenya has invested in nearly 3,500 women-led groups across 17 counties out of the 47 where we have direct presence. Founded in 1995 after the fourth UN Conference on Women in Beijing, China, 

GROOTS Kenya began as a response to the lack of visibility of grassroots women in development processes and decision-making forums that affect them and their communities.
