The purpose of the study was to identify ways of strengthening gender aspects of the work of Ereto I. The project was found to be effective in involving communities in the running of the project, and had involved women in many components of the project. As 40% of the restocked destitute people were women, there has been some change to concepts of customary ownership in the communities, and men are beginning to look at livestock ownership differently. Ereto increased opportunities for women to participate in public debate, although women's confidence in this new role needs strengthening. The document provides a description of gender relations in Maasai community, especially concerning power relations in the communities and womens' participation in public debate and decision making. Proposals for how to engage in strengthening women's engagement with the project activities are proposed.
