The SATUBO Women Group is a community project envisioned to empower women and promote sustainable development of rural communities. Members of SATUBO primarily come from Jerusalem village, near Segera Retreat.
The Jerusalem community faces challenges such as lack of education and poverty.
The group is made up of women from three different communities from Northern Kenya brought together by the need to create alternative income sources from their age-old tradition of beading. It consists of women from the Samburu, Turkana and Borana communities, who form the SATUBO Beading Group, abbreviated from the first two letters of their community’s name.
The women, coming from different tribes, are united in their common ambition to improve the living situation of their community and the name SATUBO has come to symbolise the unity and the belief that an individual is stronger through co-operation.
