Sisiyat Ogiek Knowledge Centre
The Sisiyat Ogiek Knowledge Centre was founded in 2014 by a group of 15 Ogiek women. It started as a merry-go-round group to support each other financially but they later realized they needed to expand the group’s aim beyond the merry-go-round as they faced other challenges as Ogiek women that they could address as a group beyond the financial challenges. They registered the group officially in 2015 and added 5 more members. The group now has 20 members where they engage in various activities to empower the Ogiek women and community.
We envision that the Ogiek women will be included in all decision-making process from the grassroot level to the national level.
To be recognized and our voices heard as Ogiek women and be included in decision making at all levels.
