Innovation at Mothers’ Day Celebrations. It was not business as usual in the Musemwa and Makindu Village in Sinyereri Location, Trans-nzoia County in Kenya. For the first time, mothers and Teenage mothers had an opportunity to share their memories together. It was fun and pomp and they engaged in sports and round table discussions. Invited guests came and enlightened them on ' Self reliance' Ms Anastasia from Western Conservancy Area was invited to facilitate this session. She has rich experience in working with community groups mobilizing them to take advantage of the locally available resources and opportunities. She inspired the mothers to take on Income Generating Activities to support their households and stop just relying on their husbands. Mothers are already exploring and experimenting on making local ' Food Hot Basket". This basket can keep food hot for whole day. This will go along way to support mothers to generate some income as well as support children.' We are very excited by this innovation. We hope it is going to make us come out of poverty' Mary TYSA hopes this new initiative will go along way to support welfare of mothers. Your continued support is always appreciated.
