As a company dedicated to the health and wellbeing of underserved people globally, we are deeply concerned about the effects of COVID-19 on the communities we serve. While COVID-19 spreads rapidly, we continue providing our partners with critical services as well as responding to the growing crisis. We are supporting partners in pivoting to enable programme continuity, while also developing new ways of supporting preparedness and response efforts across the globe.

Scope is actively contributing to the Inter-agency Working Group of Reproductive Health in Crises. We are researching and advocating for improved COVID-19 services for vulnerable populations, as well as designing rapid, remote means to co-create emergency responses, facility improvements, and community mobilisation efforts.

Supporting and working with young feminists to advance women's human rights in Kenya.
Scope Social Innovation Fund


The vibrant feminist movement in Kenya faces many challenges. The discourse around women’s equality and rights doesn’t often reflect the realities of women from diverse racial, cultural or socioeconomic backgrounds. Younger voices do not find themselves in the feminism narrative. Micro segmentation has created factions within the movement. Short-lived campaign life cycles have resulted in short upticks of awareness, which do not connect to long-term societal change. Rights and policies continue to stagnate and not lead toward greater systemic change. Feminists doing the work at grassroots level typically don’t have the needed funding and visibility. 

There is a critical need to better listen to, identify the barriers, and map the system connections in order to design and define modern solutions and support in the ways that work for Kenya’s next generation of feminists.


NextGenFem uses creativity, strategic planning, and co-design with young feminist activists to innovate faster ways toward the achievement of rights for a new generation of young women. We are bringing feminists together to learn the views of the new generation, identify their drivers, and map both the immediate and potential long-term needs across intersections. The goal is to engage, connect, and support young feminists to drive awareness, demand, accountability and implementation of their rights. After Kenya we hope to add more countries.

Expected results

The Kenya work will result in a NextGenFem co-creation methodology and collaboration platform that drives exploration and innovation through collaborative planning that can be extended to other countries or group. We will also produce a NextGenFem: Kenya report that outlines the barriers and issues, a roadmap, and set of solutions to address the interconnected issues.  

NextGenFem is funded by Scope’s Social Innovation Fund.
