Community Resilience

In Kenya, the women farmers of the Indigenous Information Network (IIN) have worked to improve community resilience in the face of the climate crisis, which has worsened droughts and limited water access for Pastoralist communities even before this pandemic, which has made access to water for handwashing all the more important.

Despite these challenges, IIN’s ongoing efforts to promote the harvesting of rainwater are helping to offset COVID-19’s impact on Indigenous communities. Thanks to the meaningful support of advocates like you, Indigenous women now have access to water tanks and storage containers, which they use to collect and store water for handwashing and sanitation -- vital practices for life-saving hygiene efforts. Because of your generosity, IIN is now expanding their reach to other rural Indigenous communities through a network of women’s centers. Thank you for standing with us, especially in times of uncertainty!
