Esiteti Women's Cooperative
Population: 280+ Maasai Women
RoHo has partnered with a women's cooperative in the south of Kenya, dedicated to empowering the Maasai community of Esiteti by selling their traditional beadwork. This project created income for over 280 Maasai women, creating the means for them to care for themselves, their families and their community while creating educational opportunities for their children and future generations. We seek to empower this community through economic initiatives and access to education and healthcare. By providing an international market for the Maasai women of this community, RoHo strives to unleash the power of these women decreasing cases of early marriage, HIV/AIDs and FGM, while creating greater access to education for girls throughout Maasailand.
