Women in my country are often defined by what their fathers decide is best for them. Most are not schooled, find manual labor or beg, raise younger siblings, or get married off. A few like me have been thrust by circumstances into leadership roles. Growing up, I watched women raise families from meager means. Nothing is more important than keeping the children strong and happy with a chance for a future. That’s why my heart aches for these brave women of Damongo. Without help, they will become invisible and die without a trace. Thank you for donating to our project—it may not be big and fancy, but it means life for 10 families. When successful, we plan to help other villagers, 10 families at a time, until poverty and hunger are eliminated.
