Who we serve

Vulnerable Young Women in West Pokot County

We serve girls who have suffered harmful cultural practices like Female Genital Mutilation, early marriages and denied access to education just because they were born girls. These practices lock our girls and their children in the cycle of poverty and make them highly vulnerable to harsh realities like violation, unemployment, food insecurity and conflict.  

Farming Women in Semi Arid Areas of West Pokot

We also serve women farmers that live in Semi Arid Areas of West Pokot who face the greatest vulnerability to droughts and conflicts in West Pokot Kenya. These women are not only the pillars of their families and respective communities, they also poses diverse capabilities that is unexplored due to challenging social, economic, cultural and environmental circumstances that they have battled with most of their lives.  Hence we seek to empower these women to embrace their potential to overcome poverty and vulnerability as well as to nurture and lead their communities into realizing the vision of sustainability.
