Gender Equality

UCRT has developed a unique payment program that channels a percentage of tour group funds (those provided through annual village-tour operator contracts) to an account to be used by women’s groups only.  Money can be accessed by the group only if all members agree, and typically funds are used as micro-loans that assist individuals income generating projects such as goat rearing, milk production, small agricultural projects, etc. 

UCRT and Dorobo Fund are also both partners with the Pastoralist Women’s Council, an organization highly active in promoting gender equality and community growth within pastoralist communities.
