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.
