A Case Statement has several sections—they need not be in order. The internal case is a source document about your League’s vision, used in-house by board and staff.

In 2005 the League of Women Voters in partnership with the National Council of Women of Kenya began a two-year program to strengthen democracy and democratic practices in Kenya.  Kenyans Working Together for Good Governance: Civil Society, Government, and Members of Parliament was designed to ignite an effective engagement among members of parliament, appointed district commissioners, and members of local civil society groups. The League and the National Council began working together in 1999 during the League's program Woman Power in Politics: Building Grassroots Democracy in Africa.
