Kahuria is a lush, farming community nestled near the base of the Aberdare mountains. Locals grow corn, potatoes and cabbage. Kahuria is known for its strong women. A few years ago, women on the Leadership Council were fed up with the way men in their community were abusing alcohol. They’d spend all of the family’s money on liquor while their children went hungry. Early one morning, they marched into town and tore down every bar using whatever tools they could find. To this day, none of the bars have reopened and the community continues to thank the women for helping reform the men of Kahuria.
