Meru Women’s Garden Project is a collaboration between Child.org, Soroptimist International Great Britain and Ireland and the women of Meru, Kenya.

The project aims to create sustainable gardening techniques and tools for enabling women to become mentors and pioneers of agricultural sustainability within the community. We also educate girls on their rights, empowering them to stand up to damaging cultural practices like 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.
