KHRC staff and friends celebrate the KHRC’s win of the Overall Award and two other awards during the CRECO CSOYA ceremony held at the Nairobi Safari Club, Wednesday 14 2011.Time to celebrate and end the year with a perfect gift! We at the Kenya Human Rights Commission are delighted to announce that we on Wednesday December 14, 2011, won the Over All Civil Society Organisation of the Year Award (CSOYA).
The Award was given to the KHRC having demonstrated the progress made in establishing systems and structures that enable the organization to work towards a clear vision. The KHRC also implemented these systems effectively in achieving targets and as a result of this is working towards realizing the results.
We also got the award for the best CSO in Community Focus, Productivity and Impact, tying with International Commission of Jurists Kenyan Chapter (ICJ-Kenya); and finally 1st Runner up in Leadership, Governance and Management.
Each year the Civil Society under the banner of the Constitution and Reform Education Consortium (CRECO) presents awards to outstanding Civil Society Organizations. The CSOYA Awards, which is in its fifth year, are given in recognition of performance, service delivery, leadership and accountability. The awards are not meant for organizations to pat themselves in the back but to motivate them to learn and improve on their performance.
This achievement is a team effort and we definitely thank all our partners, networks and coalitions in various capacities who have made our work possible. Hoyee, aluta continua!
