Bridging gaps for development in Turkana

There is a pressing need to empower girls and women in pastoralist communities in Turkana and its environs. Many individuals, particularly in the region, face challenges in reaching key resources due to factors such as limited awareness or financial constraints. Addressing these needs involves proactive measures, community-level engagement, and a commitment to social and economic empowerment. We are therefore seeking to alleviate poverty, instigate social change, and enhance the participation of youth in community development, to contribute to a more inclusive and equitable society.
