Kibera Pride Women group targets women around the Kibera community who have a vision to empower one another through the Chama program. The program currently has 15 women, who meet every Wednesday at the Kibera Pride center.
The group is geared towards empowering women economically, with an aim of eradicating poverty and responsible use of funds for projects and investments. We believe that economic empowerment of women is key to building a strong family and a nation.
Our mission is to create, empower, mobilize and actualize women initiatives, hence transforming the community.
We hope for: Increased women economic participation and self-reliance. Increased women’s capacity and resources for business success. Inspiring women around Kibera to increase effort in ending poverty.
