  • Organisation
    Flone Initiative is a  Kenyan women-led organisation registered as a Charitable Trust working to end violence against women and girls in public spaces with a focus on the transport industry.
    The transport sector still remains a male -dominated field. Gender is not just about differences between men and women; it is about how these differences get translated into practice and power sharing. It is therefore important to reiterate the importance of inclusive and safe urban mobility as a tool of women empowerment.

    • Project

      Flone Initiative is implementing the Women in Transport (WIT) project, seeking to identify and address the barriers for entry into public transport that women face in Kenya. Jobs in the transport sector are highly gendered and unequal. As a result, women’s voices are all too often neglected when it comes to transport planning and the pursuit of decent work in this sector. Transport is still regarded as ‘no place for women’ in many countries/sectors around the world including Kenya. In Kenya and Uganda, women in the transport sector often find themselves stuck in lower paid/lower status jobs with few, if any, opportunities for career development.
      This project seeks to change this narrative through the following key objectives;
      • To sensitise and develop working collaboration among key stakeholders in the transport sector
      • To strengthen capacity of 30 key stakeholders in the transport sector to effectively mainstream gender in their policies and operations
      • To strengthen the capacity of 60 women public transport operators in Nairobi and its environs to boost their professional skills for career advancement
      • To organise a WIT Summit to explore technical, policy, financial, and political aspects of emerging transportation issues
