Meru Garden Project 2016 -19
Over the next three years Soroptimist Clubs will support the Meru Women’s Garden Project (MWGP), a collaboration with Child.org, that will educate, empower and enable women and girls in Meru County, Kenya.
The project provides sustainable gardening techniques and tools, enabling women to become mentors and pioneers of agricultural sustainability within the community. It will also educate girls on their rights, empowering them to stand up to damaging cultural practices like female genital mutilation (FGM).
By providing economic opportunities to women and girls, MWGP will achieve long term change by strengthening entire communities; improving the lives and opportunities for children and generations to come.
