Welcome to Atumia Njorua America

A support group for women to help them reach their full potential. We work towards ensuring a life free from inequality and discrimination for every woman.
About us

Atumia Njorua America is the translation of the Gĩkũyũ tribe in Kenya which means Powerful Women in America.

One of the best methods to encourage social progress is to invest in women and girls. Girls’ education has a double benefit because it increases the women’s quality of life and helps them to contribute more effectively to society. Additionally, it empowers them to lead the way in promoting human development within their families and communities. With each successive generation, the benefits to their children’s wellbeing and possibilities for success multiply.
Children suffer when women are illiterate, in poor health, and have no control over their fertility. Not only do these affect women, but they also impede Africa’s progress. We therefore have various agendas that will help women and girls come out of their shells to escape poverty, learn to speak up more, be independent as well as learn how to navigate through any challenges that they may be facing.
Our impact
