Women's Village Umoja

The women’s village Umoja is a village in Samburu, where women’s fight against early forced marriages, FGM (female genital mutilation), and gender equality in Samburu, Kenya.

The women’s village Umoja should be on your bucket list for every female traveler if you are interested in Kenyan culture, women empowerment, and if you are ready to travel locally.

“We are all women, whether dark or white. It is our voice as women, which will make us strong. So, let’s have one voice, and we will be strong women in our societies as we support each other.”
