Since its establishment in 1994, Mifumi has directly changed the lives of more than 50,000 women and their children through comprehensive services in education, health care, micro-enterprises, and domestic violence advocacy. Being based directly in the countryside is one of MIFUMI’s greatest strengths, making it easier to reach grassroots people. Some of its most important contributions have been reforms in bride-price and domestic violence. The organization has a regional network and partners in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.
A 2017 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported Mifumis's work against child marriage.
