ARTICLE 19 Eastern Africa is implementing the project ‘Our Data Our Voice’ in Kenya with the
support of GIZ Digital Transformation Centre (DTC) Kenya. The project aims to increase the
awareness of data protection among different stakeholders in Kenya such as journalists, media
practitioners, online creatives, bloggers and photographers, and marginalized citizens.
Awareness also aims to ensure these parties understand their rights and obligations, and
adhere to data protection laws, thus building the trust needed in the data economy and
promoting the full exercise of freedom of expression and access to information.
The toolkit is expected to serve as an open resource for stakeholders in media and thus we
encourage use of practical examples.
