The good news is that we have agreed a partnership to deliver the women leaders training program with the Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT). NRT supports 39 community conservancies across northern and coastal Kenya. Recruitment of the women trainees will begin in October 2020, with the first training module planned for either late October or early November.
The women will be drawn from two neighboring community conservancies: Il Ngwesi and Lekuruki. These communities are predominately Maasai who sustain themselves through a pastoralist way of life. The women selected will be leaders in their respective communities, leading various women associations. Once selected, each woman will be asked to participate in a pre-training program interview to provide baseline information that will allow us to assess the impact of the training. The interviews will include questions about their current situation, their dreams and aspirations, their expectations from the training, and the challenges they face as women leaders in their communities.
Our program will contribute to the agenda of gender inclusion and empowerment, where more than 80% of the women are unschooled and illiterate. The unique training content has been developed over several years so that it provides learning on essential leadership and management concepts in a visual and practical way, thus making the learning easily accessible to those who are illiterate and unschooled.
Our women leaders training program is part of a broader NRT project to assist conservancies on their journey to a self-sufficient and sustainable future.
