This paper discusses the empowerment of women in the corporate world and in the community, with various gender issues. Then these findings are applied to the present status of the Maasai women in the Ngong Diocese of Kenya. Decades of cultural traditions have assigned them a passive and secondary role, with no voice to ask for rights and opportunities in their society. Yet certain training techniques can give them that voice. Indeed, not only will the Maasai women be helped, but the welfare of the Diocese itself. The women will be able to release the power within them and utilize the potential of their hidden talent to the maximum.
