Putting women at the centre of the conversation
“Every day, we realise that we have emerging issues, and as a progressive industry, we cannot bury our heads in the sand. One of those areas is gender; specifically women empowerment. It is always a pleasure for us to work very closely with women-led organisations…and look at areas such as women empowerment, gender mainstreaming, violence, women rights at the farm and within the environment in which they work.” -Clement Tulezi, the Chief Executive Officer of the Kenya Flower Council (KFC)
Research done by our partners Ufadhili Trust has highlighted the need for the flower sector to prioritise women empowerment programmes in collaboration with all stakeholders in the industry.
