Ngabwe Austine Wisley, Maendeleo ya Wanawake

Date grant awarded: 2/26/2017

Bro Wisley Ngabwe is the co-leader of Christ Victory Centre and a refugee living in Kenya from the DRC. The experience of being a refugee and passing through the hardships made him realize how difficult it is to sustain his livelihood. Together with some refugee partners, he founded the Christ Victory Centre to help refugee kids acquiring education.

Maendeleo ya wanawake is one of the projects that they are working in order to help both refugee and citizen women to sustain their livelihoods through agriculture. The project, in particular, will promote vegan culture and lifestyle in their community, and encourage women to take active part in vegetable farming and discouraging meat consumption.
