MIFUMI is a developmental NGO and women’s rights agency. Our mission is to work with people living in rural areas to reduce the burden of poverty. Our vision is to see a world where women and children feel safe in their homes, communities and in the institutions of society. We do this by breaking barriers to women’s upward mobility and autonomy such as domestic violence, constraining cultural practices such as bride price, poverty and illiteracy.
