Kenya's fisherwomen helping themselves out of poverty

Women in the Fishing Industry Programme (WIFIP), is an NGO based in Kenya that works on education and development activities for women in the fishing industry to bring about their socio-economic empowerment. 

WIFIP's work often centers around vulnerable, marginalized, rural and urban populations and those in situations of chronic economic insecurity. In this photo story, we take a look at the women who strive to empower themselves socially and economically by participating in WIFIP's programmes.
