Women on a Mission
A series of short films highlighting incredible leaders making a difference in their communities
Conservation International is highlighting incredible leaders making a difference in their communities. Josphine Ekiru grew up in the Turkana pastoralist community of Northern Kenya. From an early age, Ekiru felt a sense responsibility to her community, to its biodiversity and to future generations. Through her incredible work, she’s now fulfilling her desire to make a difference. Ekiru has taken on a leading role as peace coordinator at the Northern Rangelands Trust, where she works with peace ambassadors. And she’s training 25 more women to follow in her footsteps. #WomenOnAMission #IWD2020 Don’t miss the second installment of the “Women on a Mission” series. This video was made possible thanks to Sony, who, through our partnership, helps Conservation International capture stories like Josphine Ekiru’s and bring to life humanity’s relationship with nature.
