Meet Rose

Meet WfWI graduate Rose. She is married with 7 children. While participating in WfWI's programs Rose learned baking skills, and now sells baked good at the market to earn a living for herself and her family. She is also a trainer at WfWI, teaching other women these skills so they to can use the skills to earn an income.

Rose’s accomplishments and continuing hard work are even more impressive when taken in context.

The economy in South Sudan – a country just over one year old – is in economic crisis. Inflation has skyrocketed as the South Sudanese pound has depreciated.

The women we serve are among the poorest and most socially excluded. The rising price of goods means that our program participants and graduates cannot afford to make the purchases they need to operate their small income generation activities. For the women we serve, earning an income right now is very difficult.

In addition to the economic troubles, South Sudan is facing a major humanitarian crisis. Refugees are fleeing from fighting in the north and inter-communal violence is a persistent threat.
