What We Do

IWGI is committed to various programs aimed at promoting gender equality, environmental sustainability, and community empowerment.

Climate Justice and Biodiversity Conservation

At IWGI, we train indigenous communities in agroecological practices and establish permaculture farm models in schools to foster intergenerational knowledge transfer. Our goal is to build resilient communities that can withstand the impacts of climate change.

Land Rights and Food Sovereignty

We enlighten communities on sustainable utilization of grazing fields and promote permaculture adoption to maximize productivity. Healthy soils are the foundation of food sovereignty, and our programs ensure communities can sustainably produce food.

Gender Mainstreaming in Policy and Advocacy

IWGI is committed to gender inclusivity in policy and advocacy. We work to fast-track policies and legislation for gender mainstreaming and conduct grassroots campaigns against gender-based violence (GBV), creating spaces for women to be involved in sustainable development.

Sexual Reproductive Health Rights Education

IWGI advocates for the rights of women and Children through awareness creation of child rights and educate them on their sexual reproductive health rights, so as to effectively challenge societal stereotypes.

Use of Mass Media

We leverage the power of radio, television, and social media to amplify our message and reach a wider audience. This helps raise awareness about critical issues and garner support for our initiatives.

Agroecology training

Equips women with the knowledge and skills to navigate the challenges of climate change and build resilient livelihoods. Through organic farming techniques, participants will learn to diversify crops, improve food security and nutrition for their families, and generate income through sustainable agricultural practices.

Farm Demonstrations

We take participants to established agroecology farms within Baringo County and its environs where they can witness firsthand how practices like composting, rainwater harvesting, and crop diversification are implemented in real-world settings.

Stakeholder Engagement

The Indigenous Women and Girls Initiative (IWGI) recognizes the power of collaboration. We actively engage with a diverse range of stakeholders to build strong partnerships, empower local communities, amplify marginalized voices, and promote knowledge sharing.

Empowering Women Through Agroecology

IWGI's agroecology program isn't just about sustainable farming. It's about empowering women. By equipping them with skills to generate income, gain decision-making power, and reduce workload, IWGI fosters a supportive network that challenges gender-based violence and builds a more equitable future.
