GALCK achieves its objectives through action in following key priority action areas:

 

  1. Capacity Building

    GALCK aims to be a model of good practice in organizational competence, good governance, accountability and transparency. Emphasis is laid on strategic management, policies and procedures.

  2. Legal reform, assistance and liaison
  3. GALCK is out to ensure that Kenya’s anti-LGBTI laws are repealed and protective laws for LGBTI people are enacted. In addition, GALCK also provides legal advice and assistance to LGBTI people who are victims of Kenya’s existing anti-LGBTI laws or who are victims of physical violence or any form of discrimination that may be related to their known or presumed sexual orientation.

     

  4. Research
  5. GALCK aims to be models of good practice in our insistence that there be ever more comprehensive and reliable evidence on which to base LGBTI-related policies, programmes and activities. GALCK supports efforts by others to provide this evidence but our preference always is be to take the lead role or, at least, to play leading roles in LGBTI-related research.

     

  6. Strategic Communication
  7. GALCK aims to be reach all LGBTI people in Kenya and the general public with information, education and communications (IEC) that counter ignorance and prejudice, change attitudes and behaviors and transform Kenya. Our IEC embrace the arts, entertainment and sports and will employ the full range of methods and media: meetings, workshops, courses, counseling sessions, print, internet, radio, television, film, live performances, exhibitions and other special events, such as information booths at conferences.

     

  8. Health and Social Services
  9. GALCK aims to ensure that all LBGTI people in Kenya are provided with the physical and mental health and social services they need, including any special prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care services that may be required by MSM, WSW, transgender or intersex people.

     

  10. Social Spaces and Events
  11. GALCK advocates for, support and/or executes actions to provide LGBTI-friendly social spaces and put on LGBTI-friendly events. These spaces and events may be in public or private venues and may sometimes be associated with LGBTI-run or LGBTI-friendly businesses including theatres, bookstores, galleries, cafés, restaurants, bars, night clubs, and so on. We aim to help create as many opportunities as possible for LGBTI people to be themselves in LGBTI-friendly environments, whether those are exclusively LGBTI or mixed.

     

  12. Monitoring and Evaluation

GALCK aims to be a model of good practice in organizational competence, good governance, accountability and transparency. Emphasis is laid on strategic management, policies and procedures.

 

The Gay and Lesbian Coalition of Kenya (GALCK) and its member organizations aim to be models of good practice in monitoring and evaluation of our programmes, projects and activities. We aim to assure our financial and technical partners and all others that we are doing our best to make efficient use of our resources, to achieve our intended results and to make whatever adjustments may be necessary when actual results fall short of planned results
