livelihoodsThrough a holistic approach that combines climate education, empowerment, and economic growth, the Green Women project seeks to create a resilient and empowered community of women who are leading the way towards a greener future.

Mission
The Green Women Project is driven a profound understanding of the essential roles women play as caregivers, nurturers, and guardians of resources within rural communities.

The mission is to harness this influence and empower women with the knowledge and tools necessary to address the challenges posed climate change.

Through a holistic approach that nurtures climate education, economic empowerment, and community engagement, we are strengthening communities against the impacts of a changing climate.

Our Approach

  1. Climate Education: Through weekly sessions led a dedicated team of volunteers, we empower women with deep insights into the effects of climate changeArmed with knowledge, they not only protect their families but also pass down wisdom to future generations.
  2. Economic Empowerment: We support women in establishing green-skill businesses that align with local contextsThis not only enhances economic self-sufficiency but also contributes to environmental sustainability.
  3. Community Engagement: The creation of “green groups” fosters collaboration and knowledge-sharing among women, inspiring each other to adopt sustainable practices and embrace eco-friendly entrepreneurship.
