RELON Kenya is a wide-reaching and strong network that advocates for refugee inclusion and the meaningful participation of refugee-led organisations and individual refugees in decision-making processes affecting their daily lives. Our vision is to 'speak as one voice' when advocating for refugee rights and collective interests on platforms that matter.

RELON Kenya on Taking The Lead
Why is the Taking The Lead network important to you?
"Collaboration amplifies the voices of refugees on crucial matters affecting their daily lives. This collective voice is vital for effective advocacy."
With more funding and resources, our organisation could...
"empower refugees to be self-reliant, thus reducing the burden on host countries."
A shift from negative to positive narratives about refugees would lead to...
"the establishment of fair laws and policies that ensure refugees can be self-reliant and can contribute to the economic growth of their host countries."
If refugees could influence decisions that affect them, it would mean...
"a significant reduction in xenophobia, anti-migration/refugee policies, criminalisation of refugees, stigmatisation, and discriminatory policies against refugees and migrants."
