Gaining Of Hope From Depression

By a female, 31-45 years old, in Kakamega North, Kenya
Map of Gaining of hope from depression My name is Agnes Anchachi of ID number 6997249. Mama wajane self help group staged itself in place in our area in 2010 to which i became a member. My situation at that time was very hopeless following the dismiss of my husband the previous year. He had been the main bread winner and the one to whom the family that includes 3 children depended upon. When this group admitted me it enabled me to start accessing soft loans which the group normally gives to its members in terms to lift their economic status. I started a business of buying and selling of cloths. This greatly changed my economic security as i could now feed my family, educate the children etc beside the group has also engaged in joint income generating activities like paultry keeping, cow rearing for milk etc. Read more.

A Farm

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Kitale, Kenya
Map of A farm In this time the crops are not growing well like other years and i think this is because of the high prizes of farm inputs. Our government must ensure the fertilizers and farm inputs are of low prizes so that the farmers can manage to buy them and make good yield at the end of the year so that the issue of hunger can be minimised in our country.

Definition For The Word Help

By a male, 22-30 years old, in Port Au Prince, Haiti
Map of Definition for the word help In all the country of the world the word help have a great impotence, some time it's a true reality. I will take an example about a big hurricane which had hit the department where I come from, where there's allot of people comes and predict that they come to help those that are affected. But in the bottom it's not real. Every thing they give stay for one person, that shows that it wasn't really help. Read more.
