DID you Know that women in Rural Kenya are denied a right to own property yet they contribute the most in Family Income?
Yes. because of cultural values that have maginalized rural women in Kenya, Project Africa has begun a project called Maa's Goat Project as an empowerment resource against poverty and harful traditional practises that undermine the rights of women to education, health inheritance and ownership of property. This project is based in Lungalunga near Mombasa Kenya. 16 Project Africa women are given Goats to tend To which after one year they earn a goat each. Goats tended by the women are sold yearly and the funds are given as micro credit loans to women to start Income generating activities.
The women also benefit from goat milk to feed their families.
