A Restored Community

By a female, 31-45 years old, in Kakamega County, Kenya
Map of A RESTORED COMMUNITY Our orgnisation found out that most women in the community were housewives who faced difficulties in the hands of their drunken husbands. We talked to them and enlightened them on the need to be self employed. We guided them and supported them materially to start small businesses. They started businesses like green grocery and even small farming projects. This has helped them especially the widows who were being abused by other men. Now they don't need to rely fully on other people for support. It has also changed the moral of the community as most women were being abused sexually whenever they needed support. It has also encouraged us to help even more. Read more.
