Kenya - Samburu National Park - Umoja Women's Village

Ten years ago, a group of women established the village of Umoja, which means "unity" in Swahili, on an unwanted field of dry grasslands. The women said they had been raped and, as a result, abandoned by their husbands, who claimed they had shamed their community. Stung by the treatment, Rebecca Lolosoli, a charismatic woman and matriarch of the village, decided no men would be allowed to live in their circular village of mud-and-dung huts. | Location: Umoja, Samburu National Park, Kenya.
