Indigenous Information Network

Kenya

About

Founded in 1996, the Indigenous Information Network (IIN) is a women-led organization that works to connect Indigenous peoples in Kenya and strengthen their demands for human rights.

Together with MADRE, IIN is propelling grassroots women's solutions to climate change and developing sustainable ways of living. 

"When we started IIN in 1999, I did not think we could be where we are today. The women have a voice. They recognize and talk on their rights. No matter how the environment has changed, they keep moving, adapting to the changes and coming up with innovations. It is now 2017. Eighteen years have passed, but to us, it's just like yesterday. We are still moving stronger together, motivating each other every minute, every day, every year. Thank you, MADRE." - Lucy Mulenkei, Executive Director
