Different cultural communities in Kenya have different beliefs and practices towards women, girls and or boy child. Some of these practices lack inclusivity on important matters like education, inheritance and many other social matters. In some communities, they still hold the native beliefs that a girl child is not to be educated for reasons well known to themselves while others say the boy child is not to be educated and he therefore should be a herdsman all his life to look after cattle. all these practices eventually leaves these individuals feeling sidelined and some choose to run away from their homes to look for wellwishers who can take them to school.
Others run away because of forced marriages or even forced female genital mutilations (F.G.M's).
These women therefore need psychological as well as practical help. Some of them have come together to campaign against these vices while others have their own projects that require empowerment and and or counselling. Training on hygiene too especially on menstrual hygiene on women and training on abstinence for both Women, Girl and Boychild untill they are of age different from these cultural beliefs.
Women are trained to be self sufficient, driven and bold enough to stand against these vices. Incase of those with projects, they are helped to market their products locally and international.
