Mama Power 2020
Mothers, affectionately known as Mamas, who live in the boma (village) of Makyuni are struggling to feed their families on less than $2.00 per day. And this struggle is happening in the midst of adapting to the realities of climate change and shifts from a pastoral to a more sedentary life. Learning to create and operate a small business offers a sustainable way for these Mamas to earn money; money they need to ensure their kids have food to eat and can afford the fees to go to school.
Mama Power is a project of FTLOA which is supporting educated Maasai women to teach and mentor Mamas from concept to startup of their own micro business. Mama Power also includes a small seed fund to encourage and support the startup process.
Your donation will help to ensure these women have the knowledge and skills to feed their kids and send them to school. Ashe (thank you in the Maa language)
