Around the world, rural women face inequality when it comes to access to services, resources and education. The empowerment of women globally is an urgent requirement to help bring about an end to extreme poverty and discrimination. In Kenya alone, women provide 80% of all farm labour.
We are excited to announce that Ecologia and our partner, International Peace Initiatives (IPI), will be running a new set of skills trainings for HIV and poverty affected mothers in Meru, Kenya, enabling sustainable futures!
IPI has just completed the first year of its Ecologia-sponsored tailoring training for 15 vulnerable Kenyan women who would not usually be able to access such a course – and it’s been a real success!
Sally, our Project Development Officer, attended a graduation ceremony for the Chure Womens CBO skills training workshop in Kenya in August, supported by Ecologia Youth Trust. This is what she had to say about her experience.
