We believe that a lasting change can only come from the community itself. On the way towards a healthy society we are instilling hope and courage to empower people to make a positive difference. The most effective means we can use to achieve independency and gender equality is education. Through providing knowledge we cause people to reflect and encourage them to take new paths together. Collaborating with the communities in the Mara region specifically in the rural areas is the key to our successful training program. We provide an access to education about rights and responsibilities, to all community members. This direct connection enables us to build a network that is a symbol for development. With our educational approach of educating each other, (there) emerged a movement of women and child protection.
