The NGO Council of Kenya joined the world yesterday in marking the International Day for Women urging them to adapt to growing climate change that is now affecting food production in their respective regions.
In a press statement marking the day council chairman Stephen Cheboi said women were the “custodians of the granaries” who help to ensure there is food on the table saying drought and famine affecting many parts of North Eastern and the South Rift had hit women the hardest.
Mr Cheboi said the council was celebrating the gains of women over time through success stories in Kenya. The Council further allowed women participants from informal settlements to attend and share the success stories of work on various projects touching the lives of women and girls in the realization of their rights.
Cheboi said the council was empowering women and girls to address climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response and enlightening them on their role in improving the quality of their lives both through work and efficient farm practices.
