KHRC, in partnership with other civil society organizations, has been working on a number of informational rights including freedom of expression, access to information, right to privacy and freedom of association as provided by the Constitution of Kenya 2010. In the digital era, KHRC has extended this work to promote and protect the rights and freedoms as experienced offline to be enjoyed online.

The Internet is become a major tool and platform that is used in day to day activities in all sectors of the economy and academia. The Government of Kenya has taken various steps in developing its ICT status as a leading Information technology hub in Africa.
