THECOMMUNITY The community consists ofKuriaspeaking ethnic group. The Kuria peoplearemainlyagriculturalists and pastoralist, withtheKenyanKuriansleaningtowardsagricultureandtheTanzanianKuriansmoretowardspastoralism. TheKuriaarecloselyrelatedtotheKisiipeopleofKenyabothinlanguageandphysique.Theyaresaidtohavebeena one people until a vicious attack by the Maasai in the early 19th century scattered both populations in different directions. This apartness has ledtotheformation of distinctdialects which areclearlyunderstood by bothpeoples.

In this community, differences between man and woman dictate a difference in their social roles and this reinforces a notion that men are more superior to women. Capacity building will provide both men and women with political insight and moral support in confronting gender issues. A womans social status has led to marginalization. This was the very reason of starting the school so as to empowerthegirlchild. THEME:FOCUSONFEMALEGENITALMUTILATION Female genital mutilation is a strong tradition in this community. It is illegal.
