Focusing on Kenya and in particular on Maendeleo Ya Wanawake (MYWO), the largest national womens organization, and its partners in its relational environment, this book probes the relationships between foreign donors, grassroots development organizations and governments. Lisa Aubrey examines whether it is possible for the West and the developing world to be engaged in genuine development partnerships, and whether organizations such as MYWO are truly NGOs, as they claim to be, or whether they remain an extension of the state exploited by patriarchal party politics.
