EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
TECHNICAL CONSULTANT TO CARRY OUT A PERCEPTION SURVEY:
IMPACT OF COMMUNICATION SURVEILLANCE ON HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDERS IN KENYA
WHO WE ARE
The National Coalition of Human Rights Defenders–Kenya (NCHRD-K) is a national organization incorporated in the Republic of Kenya as a Trust. Its mission is to strengthen the capacity of human rights defenders (HRDs) to work effectively in the country and to reduce their vulnerability to the risk of persecution, through protection, capacity building, and advocacy for a favourable legal and policy environment. Established in 2007, NCHRD-K is the only national organisation that works primarily for the protection of HRDs.
HRDs play a critical role in the realization of human rights in the world. Consequently, they face reprisals ranging from intimidation, threats, physical assault and even death. Their demand for accountability and transparency from perpetrators of human rights violations, and speaking truth to power puts them at odds with the powerful elite in society who threaten the civic space in which HRDs and civil society organizations operate.
