About Global Platforms and Global Platform Nairobi

The Global Platforms (GP) originated with ActionAid Denmark (AADK).

They are founded on experiential and participatory learning techniques that have evolved through AADK’s focus on empowerment and social change.

The GPs are a natural extension of AADK’s strong experience providing formal and non-formal training using participatory methods in high, middle and low income countries.

The first GPs were in Tanzania and Denmark in 2009, but have since grown to include the MENA region (trainings have been conducted in Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon and Syria), El Salvador, Nepal, Myanmar and Kenya (Nanyuki and Nairobi).

To obtain this GP Nairobi will strive to become the leading activism hub in East Africa well placed within the strategic objectives of ActionAid Kenya and the local rights programmes as well as
the objectives of our country programmes in the rest of Africa and internationally.

GP Nairobi will assist in empowering and organising African youth to claim their constitutional rights such as basic rights, women’s rights, land rights as well as holding duty bearers to account and secure participation in decision making at all levels.
