Woman that are members of the Nairobi Young and Old cooperative group at their small center where they make income generating products that are sold at local markets and provide personal income for the women. This income enables the women to have some financial independence and not rely on their husband, when spending money on their health and education for their children. This income also helps them when deciding on family planning options. The group also gathers regularly to discuss sexual reproductive health, and family planning options. They are supported bu DSW (Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevoelkerung), an international development and advocacy organization with focus on achieving universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights.
