Improving the status of Maasai Women

Traditionally, Maasai men are in charge of the family finances. Women spend their lives reliant on fathers, brothers or husbands.

VETAID is helping Maasai women in northern Tanzania find alternative ways to earn a sustainable income. Groups of women are given training and support to enable them to develop traditional beadwork and leatherwork skills into a community business.
