Politics and Society Bidii na Kazi women group preserving the Arabuko Sokoke forest through butterfly farming

The Bidii na Kazi women cooperative, a gender-responsive sustainable agriculture project is generating income for scores of women and their families living in the forest area of Kilifi. The women breed and sell several species of butterflies as part of numerous efforts to conserve the Arabuko-Sokoke forest, providing a sustainable alternative source of livelihood to wood logging that depletes forests.
