Meet the girl entrepreneurs revolutionising Kenyan farming

Yohannes Wolday from the Nike Foundation says the Value Girls programme has transformed the way girls live and work in western Kenya

Bill Palladino – MLUI‘s insight:

And from Kenya, a look at how a turn towards farming is helping young Kenyan women keep away from the only other available method of making money in this impoverished country. The sex trade is a force in this part of Africa.  Learning some basic farming methods, along with a bit of business sense, is allowing these women to create their own path, while truly serving the food systems needs there. Quite a difference from the reasons we in the U.S. are drawn to farming.
