Description of the project: Since 2007, Church World Service has supported isolated communities in Kenya through a programme called Asset Based Community Development Framework (ABCD) to address both gender inequalities and climate adaptation. It includes gender-power workshops, parental education promoting girls’ schooling, and the creation of locally-led water management committees. The programme also tackles women’s economic empowerment through revenue diversification: adolescent girls and young women are trained in beekeeping, entrepreneuship and leadership. Community-led solutions are created and maintained to improve food security and climate resilience for over 7,000 beneficiaries, and transform gender power relations.
