Under the IUF Sugar project in Kenya and South Africa, the Kenya Union of Sugar Plantation Workers Union (KUSPAW) further developed an in-depth work on Occupational Safety and Health conditions in the country’s sugar subsector.
As the Food and Allied Workers Union (FAWU) of South Africa organised their first-ever Sugar Conference and was also a union participating in the IUF Sugar project, it was deemed important to increase union solidarity and exchange of experiences, for a KUSPAW delegate to present the results of the IUF Sugar/KUSPAW work. Miriam Wanyama made such presentation. She is the Chairperson of the Women’s Committee, Nzoia Branch, and the secretary for the union’s national Women’s Committee.
