FLOWERS STILL BLOOM even in a pandemic

The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have been devastating. In this documentary we feature untold stories of the lived experiences of women working in the horticulture sector in Kenya and ways some farm management are responding, coping and recalibrating amidst the uncertainties. Since 2017, FEMNET in partnership with Hivos have been implementing the Women@Work Campaign with an aim to empower women working in the horticultural sector and advance decent work. Through various interventions in pilot farms in Kenya, FEMNET has been enhancing the leadership capacities of women and men leading committees and trade unions, by equipping them with necessary skills to influence individual and workplace decisions. FEMNET has also been supporting farm management to review and adopt gender-responsive policies and practices as well lobbying for gender equality and decent work at national, regional and international policy spaces.
