Community land ownership no longer exists in Transmara, as land is already subdivided and titled for each head of the family, the men. This leaves women with limited access and no control over land decision-making, especially widowed women whose land is taken over by the husbands' male relatives. This project will increase indigenous women's access to and control of productive resources such as land by strengthening the networks of organized women groups in advocating for their land rights. This will improve women#s participation in decision making on land issues and ensure access to land, and other productive resources. The project will also work to sensitize the communities on women's land rights and ensure participation of women in land boards and other decision making bodies.
