Contribute to achieving self-sufficiency of Afar pastoralist women. The majority of Afar pastoralist women is illiterate, harmful practices of female genital mutilation are widespread and these women have hardly any economic opportunities. Through education and by enabling them to take up productive activities this cycle will be broken with the objective of improving their well-being in their communities.

Through this project we contribute to relieving the poverty of Afar pastoralist women through enabling them to achieve self-sufficiency. Pastoralists women will be enabled in intellectual and economic development. As literate, trained women involved in income generating activities they will become as examples to their communities.
