The traditional making of the maize meal is very demanding and labor intensive.
Omillings are raised to believe that only Ogali (a porridge made out of ground maize) constitutes a full meal. Any other foods eaten in between are regarded inadequate substitutes.
Let’s say you meet a villager late in the afternoon and ask if he or she has eaten. Most likely they will tell you that they haven’t eaten all day although they might have eaten peanuts, milk and a few other non-Ogali foods.
The process starts with the woman retrieving dry corn on the cob, which had been stored after harvest. The woman will elicit the help of children, aunts, female relatives and close friends.
The proliferation of diesel run hammer mills has helped in relieving girls and women in rural Africa. Omilling needs your help to get one.
$3,465 have been donated towards the budget of $7,500. But we still need $4,035! As soon the goal is reach – HopeOfiriha gives Omilling a hammer mills.
We still need your help to put the finishing touches on this project to help girls, and women to get out from the cycle of labor intensive work, and also to free up time.
