The empowerment of Woman is one of the most important tools to reduce poverty worldwide. Time and time again, statistics show that offering a woman education and empowering her with a vocational skill will not only bring self sufficiency and the ability to direct her own future, it also improves the lives of her children, family and the community in which she lives. Heshima Kenya's work is incredibly important. Their holistic approach to the 'whole women' is rare, yet so necessary if we are ever to change the paradigm for women. In Kenya especially as refugee camps overflow and women are exposed to sexual violence and discrimination, the work of Heshima Kenya and their unique approach is more important now than ever. Thank you to all at HK for your dedication and passion to making real and positive change in the lives of refugee women.
