Empowered Women and Girls

Empowered Women and Girls

In many parts of Africa, rural and indigenous women and girls bear the primary responsibility for collecting water, caring for the land, and farming. Yet men often assume a greater role than women in managing precious natural resources. We tap into the unique knowledge and talents of African women and girls to elevate them as conservation champions. By taking part in community programs, leadership opportunities, and decision-making, women and girls make a positive impact on their families, communities, and landscapes. 

HOW WE EMPOWER WOMEN AND GIRLS

Woman-in-Conservation-Intern

Support Women in Conservation Internships and Girls’ Programs

We support aspiring local women to launch careers in conservation through field-based internships. Beginning in 2021, we will also offer Girls Clubs to provide a safe space for young girls to learn important life skills and build a path to future environmental scholarships and careers.

Promote Gender Equity in Conservation Leadership

We believe successful conservation must include women's voices. We commit to achieving gender parity in our leadership and to supporting the Tanzanian government to involve more women in the wildlife sector. Together, we will drive positive systemic change for women throughout the country and across Africa.

Invest in Sustainable Livelihoods

We know from experience that rural women who earn their own incomes are likely to invest in the greater good of their families and communities. We work with local women's groups to co-create business opportunities that benefit people and nature.
Learn about our Women's Beekeeping Initiative

“In the past, our job as women was to cook and give birth to our children, but now we are leaders in our community. We have moved from struggle to success. We have earned the honor of being seen and able.”
