Enhancing participation and empowerment of pastoralist women. We aim to strengthen the capacity of marginalized pastoralist communities in Afar and Borena Zone in Oromia Regions, focusing on women, to effectively participate and proactively engaged in processes affecting their lives. This is sought to be achieved through supporting pastoralists institutions in developing their access to information, communication and dialogues.

We support strenghtening of marginalised pastoralist communities in Afar and Borana zones to effectively participate and proactively engage in processes affecting their lives. In Afar region this will be done through awareness creation on preventing harmful practices (early marriage, female genital mutilation and undermining women in decision making. In Borana Zone we will support the economic empowerment of pastoralist women, promoting active participation in the community, create awareness on harmful practices and promote participation in decision making.
