Alice is an Indigenous Rendille woman from Kenya and a powerful advocate for the rights of women and girls. In her rural community, water sources, open pastures and animal herds were declining due to climate change. She saw how this endangered people’s lives. No longer able to depend on herding livestock, women were struggling to feed their families, and the arid land they live on made it nearly impossible to grow food.
With your help, Alice began to organize with other women in her community. They knew firsthand their communities' needs for environmental conservation and for land preservation.
With the women in her community and with MADRE's local partner, the Indigenous Information Network, Alice mobilized a solution. She and the other women in the group set up a greenhouse to grow the food their families depend on. They installed systems to collect rainwater and pumps to help irrigate their crops. With your support, the women are not only raising more successful harvests, they have generated a new source of income for women to sustain themselves and their families. Thank you!
