Challenge

Currently there are over 200 women ex prisoners in Eldoret slums. Most of them were convicted for commercial sex work, alcohol brewing and property related crimes.More hurting is that some are convicted for crimes they did not commit. After release, unable to make it in the conventional world, over 60% of women ex-prisoners are rearrested.Women are often imprisoned for economic, non-violent offences often linked to their financial situation attributed to Poverty and discriminatory laws.

Solution

ELWOFOD will support 50 Women ex-prisoners that will be direct beneficiaries for this project and have a small garden around their kitchens or homes where they can grow vegetables. The project will provide farm inputs and training to 50 women ex-prisoners so that women ex-prisoners can grow fresh farm vegetables using organic landfill sacks for household consumption and surplus sale to supplement family income. This organic farming technology uses little space and requires little water.

Long-Term Impact

- 50 ex-Prisoners will have agribusiness skills and produce fresh kitchen garden vegetables through organic farming both for family and for sale thereby making the. This will ensure they are self reliant with self employment. - 50 women ex-prisoners have a steady food and earn a living from sales of surplus fresh farm vegetables . This income will supplement their families daily needs hence financial security. -Ultimately, it will enable them to come together, heal and thrive
