Throughout September, the project team has conducted field visits to Maili Sita, Kimashuku and Namwai. The team visited the women’s individual farms, demonstration farms, and the greenhouses in Maili Sita and Namwai. The women are progressing well despite the climate changes and other challenges that they are facing and are currently very busy harvesting the vegetables.


During the month of August, the engaged women groups were provided with the following trainings:

Women in Kimashuku A were provided with training on farming techniques. The women were trained on how to farm according to the climate change, suitable areas and soil types for farming seasonal fruits and vegetables, how to plant and sow different fruit seeds and vegetable seeds, how to produce and use organic fertilizers and its advantages to the soil, Interchanging farming i.e., they were taught on the importance of farming produce periodically and its advantages, how to make and use organic pesticides, and duration which the produce will be ready for harvest after using the pesticides, and the best techniques that they can use to acquire a great output.


The EWFT team provided legal counseling to women in Kimashuku A. Through this segment the team was able to identify four (4) women with legal disputes. Each woman who had a legal dispute was provided with legal aid and legal counseling. The EWFT team opened a dispute file for each member with a dispute to make a legal follow up and assist the women in resolving the disputes.


Tricia has contacted Ms. Tash King who is the chief adventure officer at follow Alice Tours, who was very positive towards working with us to develop and market a tour package. The tour would entail tourists visiting the farming women in Maili Sita, Kimashuku and Namwai, participate in the farming activities with the women and prepare and share a local meal with them. Currently we are waiting to hear back from Tash so that we can proceed with the development of the tour package.

The women in Maili Sita, Kimashuku and Namwai are anxious to receive the training on how to host the guests and they have been inquiring about when the tourists will start visiting them in their homes and farms on many occasions when we go for field visits.



In the month of September 2022, the EWFT team visited the women in Kimashuku A and collected case studies. The team successfully collected five case studies from five different women. These case studies will be shared on the Equality in Tourism Website and Social Media Pages over the coming weeks.
