Donate to the Umoja Women's Group
In 1990, 15 Samburu women founded Umoja Uaso Women’s Group. Rejected by their husbands and forced from their homes following rape, they then started the Kenyan village of Umoja (meaning “Unity”) as a safe community for survivors. As a women-run village, Umoja has declared itself a violence-against-women free zone. Through MADRE, you can help Umoja Village develop their clean water projects, which will improve village health and literally add hours onto each woman's day.
