Currently the group has a membership of over 800 rural women. M-A-K’s vision is for united rural women to combine their knowledge, skills and efforts to improve the quality of their socio-economic lives. The group’s focus is on engaging rural women in sustainable income generation and food security to promote peace and social justice in their communities. M-A-K has been receiving community grants from the National Accountability Group since 2006.
