WHO WE ARE T
he Daughters of Mumbi Global Resource Center is an independent, non-partisan, non-ethnic network - launched in 2004 . We are inspired by values drawn from four meanings of Mumbi in the Gikuyu language and culture:
Mumbi Means: Creator
- Connecting to the Environment which must 'include human beings as a species worth saving;
Clan - Pledging to build united, just & caring communities and relationships at all levels;
First Mother - Honoring women's role in anchoring family & community and linking to our respective diverse cultural roots; and
Potter - Recognizing dignity in the work of out hands, especially women's work and creativity.
Daughters of Mumbi Global Resource Center is inspired and informed by the struggles of African women past and present. We seek to add value to the work and struggles of peoples movements in Kenya and across Africa through local organizing, regional capacity building and policy advocacy. We locate our contributions in multiple contexts - the local, national, regional, continental and global - with a deep commitment to engage grassroots, women and other broad civil society formations. Our work is centered in the fight for Justice, dignity, peace and sustainability for all.
