Research & Knowledge Creation

At CWID, we conduct rigorous, ground-breaking research in all program areas. The main objective is always to use this evidence-based research to recommend specific policy and regulatory asks that are reflective of county-specific context and needs. All research projects are guided by CWID’s Technical Committee (drawn from Secretariat, Board members, Like-minded partners, and Academic institutions)

Specifically, CWID builds capacity of young and potential MUSIC Artists through a MUSIC MENTORSHIP program. Here known musician are linked with upcoming artists for support.

Local and Community Media 

CWID works with local and community media in many projects with the objective of reaching specific atrget audience to generate debate on current affairs affecting them. This approach has been very succesful due to the growing love for local and venacular content by kenyans. The platform is utilized for both public education and advocacy on key issues.

Community Engagement and Mobilization

CWID’s main beneficiaries are the community members and therefore all projects (both on-going and those at conceptual stage) must focus towards engaging the community. Communities are identified through community mobilizers and leaders. Engagements may be in form of open community forums, barazas, or through dissemination of key IEC materials.
