WOLTS Team Perspectives! Seats of power – women’s land rights and chairs
25 February 2020
Mokoro is delighted to announce publication of the first in a new series of blogs titled ‘WOLTS Team Perspectives.’ In this series, different members of the global WOLTS team share their views about the impacts of the project’s action-research on gender, land and mining among pastoralist communities in Tanzania and Mongolia. We are pleased to co-publish this first piece in the series simultaneously with the Land Portal. WOLTS Team Perspectives No.1 is written by Joyce Ndakaru and is called: ‘Seats of power – women’s land rights and chairs.’ In her blog, Joyce describes her own upbringing in a traditional and patriarchal Maasai village and reflects on how the WOLTS project is delivering positive changes to gender relations in similar contexts in seemingly small but significant ways. Joyce works as Gender Officer with the Tanzanian NGO, who have partnered with Mokoro on the WOLTS project since 2016.
