Women’s Initiatives

100 Humanitarians International is committed to helping women in a variety of ways. We feel that women’s empowerment in Kenya is two-fold: 

Programs that save them time
Programs that create income
Programs that prevent human trafficking and rape

We choose our Women’s Initiatives carefully, partnering with women in Kenya to make this happen. Click on a project below to read about what we are doing for each program.
