Economic Justice on Women’s Land Rights

Ntengwe for community development

The project targets women-led grassroots organizations, local authorities, government agencies, and men in Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, and Zimbabwe to achieve equality in land ownership and control between men and women. Women constitute between 42-88% of the agricultural labor force yet remain excluded from owning and controlling the land they work. Ntengwe and its four partner organizations are members of the Huairou Commission. The long-term objective is to build women's legal capacity, advocate for land rights, and build relationships between key actors at local, national, and regional levels.
