From unprecedented population ageing to increasing unemployment, from global leadership imbalance to persisting conflicts, from resource scarcity to volatile global food supplies are the major challenges being encountered by young mothers in developing countries. Meru County is not an exempted from Meru region. CIFORD Kenya is working to eliminate these challenges by empowering women especially young mothers to enable them to be economically self-reliant and to stay healthy together with their families and especially child care, hygiene and nutrition.
CIFORD KENYA has organised the first ever one-day seminar to train the young women aged 16-35yrs on Child health, care and nutrition and how to boost themselves their economic opportunities by training on beadwork for income generation to supplement the family income and be an alternative to agriculture.
