The Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) was founded in 1992 and registered in Kenya in 1994 as a national level Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO). Throughout its existence, the core agenda of the Commission has been campaigning for the entrenchment of a human rights and democratic culture in Kenya through monitoring, documenting and publicising rights violations.
The KHRC also works at community level with 27 human rights networks (HURINETS) across Kenya. We link community, national and international human rights concerns. KHRC’s strategic plan aims to ‘Secure civic-driven, accountable and human rights-centred governance. Its founders and staff are among the foremost leaders and activists in struggles for human rights and democratic reforms in Kenya.
