Today we drove to Chogaria to visit Chure Women’s Empowerment Group. We were warmly welcomed with singing and dancing as soon as we pulled up. Chogaria’s Women’s Empowerment Group received an award for Best Community Based Organization in Meru, and our group had the honor to witness the ceremony. The Deputy County Commissioner was there as well, and at first he was very intimidating, but by the end of the ceremony, he was cracking jokes with us. It was such a rewarding feeling watching the trophy be handed to the leader of the Women’s Empowerment Group. As soon as the women were handed the trophy, they began singing and dancing, just as they did when we arrived. These women have so much hope and dedication, and it was truly inspiring to witness their efforts being paid off.
