Nakuru County is located North-West of Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, situated in the former Rift Valley province. Agriculture is seen to be the backbone of the county and it is here that the first of five International President’s Appeal projects is gathering momentum, working with the Mwihoko Women’s Group, supported by the SI Union of Kenya and local stakeholders.
The Mwihoko Project is generating opportunities for women and girls in leadership; creating sustainable food security to families; facilitating access to water and clean energy, and through these activities, developing opportunities for the economic growth.
SI is delighted to announce that Phase one of the project is now nearing completion. Following a recruitment process, the Mwihoko Women Group, supported by the SI Union of Kenya and local partners, identified 74 women farmers to be leaders, participants, and beneficiaries of this transformative project.
