• Our Mission

    LRF, as a premier bridge to justice institutions, seeks to harness the collaborative benefits of strategic partnerships to gain holistic participatory interventions towards justice, equity and resilience in communities.

  • Our Vision

    At LRF, we envision ‘a just and equitable Society’. This vision depicts the desired state of the society, primarily within Kenya and beyond, that LRF as a human rights organization is working towards. The institutional vision of LRF is therefore: “A premier catalyst institution for a just and equitable society.

  • Our Motto

    Our Motto “Haki Itawale” has been adopted in the fight for Justice and equity. This is a Kiswahili (the main national language of Kenya) phrase whose English meaning is “Justice for all”. Through our vast network in the country, we aim to ensure justice for every Kenyan, despite their social, political or economic status.
