Boosting Indigenous Girls' Leadership in Africa

MADRE and Indigenous Information Network (IIN)--our partner in Kenya and a recognized leader of the African Indigenous women’s movement--are building intergenerational leadership and growing the movement for Indigenous girls’ rights across East Africa. 

With MADRE’s support, IIN recently expanded its programming to include Indigenous girl-centered workshops in Kenya, as well as with the Pastoralist Information Development Organization (PIDO) in Tanzania. To date, IIN and PIDO have organized more than 15 socially-distanced workshops that created a safe space for over 700 Indigenous girls to openly discuss issues impacting their daily lives, such as the connections between the impacts of climate breakdown and increased instances of gender-based discrimination or violence.

These workshops were integral to building girls’ knowledge of their rights and self-confidence, further contributing to their personal growth, path to autonomy and leadership, and ability to speak out about the injustices they face. Collectively, these workshops represent a significant movement-building space for girls where they learn how climate change is an issue of gender justice and are given the tools to drive action towards climate justice in their communities.

Thanks to your generous donation through GlobalGiving, young women and girls in Tanzania and Kenya are becoming the next generation of Indigenous leaders advocating for gender equality and climate justice.
