Nalepo women group in Amboseli are strategizing how best to present their exquisite works during the anticipated upcoming National Arid and Semi-arid Lands conference.
This is after Governor Joseph Lenku on Madaraka Day announced Kajiado will host this year’s second national ASAL conference which brings together 29 pastoralist counties.
The conference will be held in Amboseli this August and is slated to bring together 29 pastoralist counties and hundreds of local and national delegates.
Nalepo women group members have said they are determined to make some good returns from their ushanga, beaded fabric and shuka sales, and from their tents rental service.
According to them, the income generated from the sale of their products during the conference will help them boost their children’s education savings account. The group has an Equity Bank account that was opened about two years ago.
If you are planning to be in Amboseli for the ASAL conference, please seek out Nalepo Women’s Group.
Kindly support their impressive efforts. You are a portrait of courage. We see you and we honour you for standing tall in the midst of a devastating drought season. Your stoicism, strength and hope is an inspiration to all.
We celebrate Nasieku Oseur for taking the lead and mobilizing our local and global communities towards achieving economic empowerment.
