Women embrace education

05 April 2013, 13:20 James Kabotia

A women's organisation in the Maasai pastoral community in Laikipia has started peace clubs in schools geared towards motivating their students to work hard in their studies.

Enyuata Olosho, a women's organisation whose theme is empowering women with leadership, has formed peace clubs at Dol Dol Boys Secondary School, St Francis Girls Secondary School, Ilpolei Secondary School and Kimanju Secondary School in Laikipia North District.

Speaking to the media during a peace walk in Dol Dol town, Enyuata Olosho coordinator Merian Matunge said that parents need to take their children to school instead of sending them to the grazing fields to watch over livestock, an activity that renders them idle and can lead to inappropriate behavior.

Merian said that the organisation has also encouraged the elderly people in the community to adopt education saying that they cannot only rely on their animals.

Merian also said that they have participated in offering civic education to pastoralists regarding the need to apply for national identification cards.

The organisation has also offered guidance and counseling to students in the four schools and donated motivational books to them.

“We have stepped up to form these clubs in schools because we want them to adopt good leadership skills as well as good morals,” said Merian.

Enyuata Olosho consists of 45 members and has educated the students to be wary of early pregnancies, early marriages, FGM and irresponsible sex.
