Ms. Chelaite (Kenya) added that it was regrettable that the proposed new constitution had been rejected by the public; it was a circumstance in which there had been a great deal of political manipulation and which had delayed progress in many areas.
Ms. Suda (Kenya) said that it was not possible for the Government to provide statistics on the informal sector, where women predominated, because it was by nature unregulated and unorganized. The Women’s Enterprise Development Fund, established in 2006, would contribute to the economic empowerment of women, particularly those working in the informal sector.
20. Ms. Coker-Appiah, recalling that the Kenyan Government was committed to improving maternal and child health services, asked what specific plans had been formulated to that end. Noting also that unsafe abortions contributed to high maternal mortality rates, she asked whether the Government had given critical consideration to the issue of making abortion a criminal offence, and whether it had taken steps to persuade medical personnel not to deny treatment to women suspected of having unsuccessful abortions.
KALA’s literacy program, whose primary target groups are rural women and youth, addresses some of the country’s most pressing problems: lack of educational resources, poverty, unemployment and social marginalization.
KALA has implemented the Program for Economic Empowerment and Functional Adult Literacy in several rural areas of Kenya. The aim of the program is to provide practical training to promote the economic empowerment of adults and youth through the acquisition of basic and functional literacy skills. Economic empowerment includes training in entrepreneurship and management skills that enable recipients to engage in income-generating activities. These activities provide significant additional income and thus reduce the dependence of households on income from weather-dependent activities such as agriculture. One of the aims of KALA is to improve the capacity of learners to make relevant decisions that influence their livelihoods.
