Umoja Uaso Women Group

In 1990, women who had been raped or left their husbands because of domestic abuse formed the Umoja Uaso Women's Group to support each other. They started by selling beadwork and other goods, and then decided to found a women-only village and live together providing collective security and cooperation. Umoja means Unity in Swahili. Uaso is the name of the river where this community resides.
