Empowering women to achieve their full potential is one of the most powerful ways to fight poverty. Yet in many countries, women continue to face tremendous barriers to success. They have limited access to the productive resources like land, finance, and information that they need to grow their farms and businesses, and they are disproportionately affected by poverty, violence, and discrimination. In most cases, women must also balance the bulk of household and childcare responsibilities with efforts to improve their skills and earn independent incomes.
How Brogibro Is Involved
Brogibro works creatively and proactively to help women in Kenya gain equal access to the knowledge,and finance that enhance both their incomes and their opportunities for the future.
Our work centers around three main goals:
- Training, supporting, and empowering women as farmers, entrepreneurs, workers, and members of farming households.
- Closing gender gaps in the performance of enterprises led by women.
- Building inclusive and competitive businesses that generate decent opportunities for women.
We do this by working with families and communities to overcome gender barriers that may prevent women’s equal participation in our programs or income-generating activities.
The Impact We Are Making
Women groups and entrepreneurs
Empowering women economically helps empower women within their families, their communities, and beyond. Brogibro sets ambitious targets for women’s inclusion in all our programs, working hard to overcome social and cultural barriers to women’s full participation. Brogibro has helped improve the incomes and livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of enterprising women throughout the developing world.
Families and communities
When women gain economic empowerment, the effects spread across families and communities. Research indicates that women invest more of their income on family needs such as food, medical care, and schooling, improving opportunities for the next generation. Women in leadership positions such as entrepreneurs, farmer trainers, or cooperative leaders, also help break down harmful gender-based norms and stereotypes in their communities, while serving as important role models for girls and other women.
