Govinda is a farmer and a mothers’ group member living in Jima. These are her experiences from our project in Mugu:

“We have learned to grow vegetables, to keep our houses hygienic and clean and how to keep our children healthy. Most of all, we have learned to stand up and do things by ourselves without having to rely on our husbands for money. We have a better voice and positions in our families. Previously, older male members of the society had said we women cannot do anything on our own. Now they are praising us for our achievements. I can confidently say that we have definitely moved forward, as women, with the support from this project”.
