"Every time I wake I"m happy" says Norkorchum from Turkana who recently arrived at the Umoja Uaso Women's Village in northern Kenya near Archers Post. Umoja, also known as The Village Where Men Are Banned, was started in 1990 by Rebecca Lolosoli in response to violence against women, forced marriage, rape, female genital mutilation. These images are of the Umoja Uaso Women, their lives in the village living without men, the systems that they have put into place to keep safe, to earn money and to maintain their emancipation.
