  • Organisation

    Namunyak Lepolosi Women’s Group was formed in 2015 at a time when women were engaging local brewing and the women were unable to meet their daily basic needs, families would go to bed without meals. The need to educate the women on their rights and effective income generating activities has been pursued by the group to reduce the illiteracy levels gap and lower the impact of harmful traditional beliefs and practices. This has resulted in improved self-esteem among women, better proper health through food security among the already trained few groups and an active and free participation in group and local activities. Our activities have since attracted more women to form a network and registered under an umbrella of 52 women groups with many untrained women.

    Namunyak Lepolosi carries out various projects in rightsholders location where its possible to reach every member of each group as compared to conducting the trainings or workshops in a centralized location. This will reach even more women and enhance knowledge sharing and implementation of the project ideas. This is a strategy that the organization will keep implementing for further projects to ensure a large coverage and a better continuity of knowledge sharing.

    • Project

      Our project will target indigenous women (young, old and people living with disabilities) and young indigenous people  s of the Maasai community who have limited access to understanding of their rights and different income generating activities yet most of them are bread winners. Our main objectives are to work with the all women (young, old and people living with disabilities) to enhance an understanding of women’s and youth rights as enriched in the constitution in regards to access to education and proper health, advocating against harmful traditional practices such as gender violence and beliefs where women have no right to education or to own property, enhance women’s leadership skills and platform where they can voice their issues and influence decision making in government levels.

      The project will involve dialogues with local leaders and the village elders who are influential in their spaces and can enhance women’s activities and act as advocates. Activities will build on the women’s trainings on land rights and access to productive resources on land, lessons on leadership skills that will improve their management skills as well as employ income generating activities to school their children especially girls whose education will ensure continuity of voicing their needs and understanding of the land and other property rights and creating awareness on gender-based violence.
