This Saturday all roads will lead to Ahero Multi-purpose Center where  Wakili Fred Odumo Nying’uro will be meeting all the women of Kisumu County for a mega-empowerment engagement program.

Chief on the agenda is how to set up and fund projects for empowering women to get ultimate economic independence.

One of the key pillars of Wakili Fred Odumo Nying’uro’s agenda is to empower women academically, health-wise and economically. And the theme for this meeting will be: Ma e Saa [It’s time now].

It has been noted that the empowerment and autonomy of women and the improvement of their political, social, economic and health status is a highly important end in itself. In addition, it is essential for the achievement of sustainable development.

The full participation and partnership of both women and men is required in productive and reproductive life, including shared responsibilities for the care and nurturing of children and maintenance of the household. In all parts of the world, women are facing threats to their lives, health and well- being as a result of being overburdened with work and of their lack of power and influence.

In most regions of the world, women receive less formal education than men, and at the same time, women’s own knowledge, abilities and coping mechanisms often go unrecognized. The power relations that impede women’s attainment of healthy and fulfilling lives operate at many levels of society, from the most personal to the highly public.

Achieving change requires policy and programme actions that will improve women’s access to secure livelihoods and economic resources, alleviate their extreme responsibilities with regard to housework, remove legal impediments to their participation in public life, and raise social awareness through effective programmes of education and mass communication. In addition, improving the status of women also enhances their decision-making capacity at all levels in all spheres of life, especially in the area of sexuality and reproduction. This, in turn, is essential for the long- term success of population programmes.

Experience shows that population and development programmes are most effective when steps have simultaneously been taken to improve the status of women.
