GIRL CHILD RIGHTS
Girls’ education is a strategic development priority. Better educated women tend to be healthier, participate more in the formal labour market, earn higher incomes, have fewer children, marry at a later age, and enable better health care and education for their children, should they choose to become mothers.
Girlkind Kenya has been working with the locals to provide alternative livelihoods and to diversify livelihood options for the pastoralists in the light of climate change rendering nomadic pastoralism unsustainable. Many households are forced to abandon pastoralism and seek employment.
