    Women Empowerment Project

    The project was implemented from September 2020 to December 2023 in a total of three phases. The geographical focus was Kisumu Central and Kisumu East. The overall objective was to promote the productivity of women for poverty reduction through empowerment as partners in development with a view to achieve equality for men and women, boys and girls. The female participation in gender activities would lead to gender promotion and active contribution along development lines in various communities. • Systematization of the project, a process that intended to produce knowledge about action or practice, through the analytical reflection and interpretation about what we proposed to do, compared to our initial knowledge with what truly happened which contained what we learnt during the practice. The process allowed NYATUYO to communicate and disseminate the lessons and knowledge produced as a result of project intervention. .
