CARE in Kenya & URAIA Trusts Field Visit Endorois Indigenous Women Empowerment Network (EIWEN)

Date: 17-11-2022

The Endorois Indigenous Women Empowerment Network (EIWEN) was on Thursday, 10/11/2022 visited, by the WVL team from Care in Kenya and Uraia Trust.

Led by Care in Kenya's Communication and Reporting officer Pauline Njathi and Uraia Trust's team, comprised of Gladys Maina, John Kamande, Elijohn Gitau and Bildad Makori, the team made their way to EIWEN's office in Nakuru during a field monitoring visit.

The field and monitoring visit that was supported by Care in Kenya via Uraia Trust, was aimed to see and look into the progress made and challenges encountered by EIWEN, a beneficiary of the ongoing Women Voices and Leadership (WVL) project that is funded and supported by Global Affairs Canada. The WVL project aims to contribute to gender equality and the increased enjoyment of human rights by women and girls in Kenya.

EIWEN is a local indigenous Community Based Organization registered in Kenya. It is a women-led organization mandated to advocate for the rights of women, persons with disabilities and girls in the Endorois Community.
