I stood firm as a community woman to bring up my children. I even tried to plant trees as my income, but he slashed them down. I just lived like a widow with no husband, but this will not stop me from continuing with life.
Although I am just a woman, I’m trying my best to provide for my family. Nothing comes easily. And it comes with struggles. We must have patience in our life.
“I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong, I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.”

Thank you so much for purchasing this book. The proceeds from this book goes to help all the women who have written in the book.
You will find out from their stories that these women are extremely poor. Many of them are widows and many children are orphans.
There is a lack of food and water for these people. Some still live in grass huts that cave in once the grass rots. Children drop out of school because they lack uniforms, socks, or shoes, and the school fees are not paid.
Some families have resorted to eating tree leaves and roots as they can’t buy any food, and they are having trouble growing food due to their lack of rain and resources.
As you read their stories, you will find that although they are dealing with unimaginable difficulties and heartbreak, they do what they can to stay positive and support their families.
