MFA has conducted a study on women and elective politics with two main objectives;

One, to find out what opportunities are there in the laws of Kenya, in our cultures, in technology etcetera, that can be taken advantage of and utilized while implementing this project to promote women leadership in Kenya.

Two, to find out what challenges and barriers stand in the way of women leadership in Kenya. This will help MFA come up with strategies and activities aimed at addressing these challenges and barriers and thus ensure the women being supported are successful.
