Challenge

As part of a culture that is highly patriarchal, pastoral women are extremely marginalized and are often excluded from decision-making processes. They often have no rights to own property or livestock and no opportunities for economic development. As a result, they are often vulnerable to discrimination and land loss.

Solution

By providing these 24 women with training and the materials they need to start a small business, including market literacy training, access to livestock and seeds, you are helping them earn a stable income and provide for themselves and their families.

Long-Term Impact

Our research has shown that when pastoral women have the opportunity to earn income and own property, they are less vulnerable to discrimination and marginalization. When women are earning an income, their children are healthier and better educated as well.
