KMYA is aware that gender is a key thematic subject in human development the world over. It appreciates the special role and position of women in society is increasingly emboldening by virtue of the fact
that women nurture society and are guarantors of future generations. In this regard, KMYA also undertakes programmes geared towards challenging and eliminating traditional prejudices and stereotypes that tend undermine the status of Muslim women in society. Additionally, the plight of other marginalized groups such as People with Disabilities (PWDs), who are stigmatized and lack basic needs, is addressed under such programmes. KMYA has thus ensured gender mainstreaming is at the core of its programming.
