The Women Farmers Association of Kenya (WoFaAK) is the national umbrella organization of women farmers in Kenya. WoFaAK is a non-political, non-government and non-religious member based organization. The association was formed and registered pursuant to the provisions of the Societies Act, Cap 108 laws of Kenya in 2017. The association provides the women farmers of Kenya with a platform to articulate issues affecting them in agriculture.
