Catalyzing Women's Climate Solutions in Kenya

In partnership with Women in Water and Natural Resource Conservation (WWANC)

The Kenya Accelerator

The Kenya Women's Earth Alliance Accelerator convenes a powerful group of women leaders who are out front – fiercely protecting our water, food, air, forests, land, sacred sites, indigenous lifeways, and future generations. By investing in women leaders to scale solutions for change, we are creating the conditions for an inclusive, safe, and thriving world.
