Then in 2002, I was blessed with a child, which brought happiness to my marriage.
But after a short period of time, when my child was old enough, he could provide something for me—but living in a small house of grass with an additional five children that God blessed me with was very hard.
I believe in my younger self. I will get a house and meals for my children soon.
Now, I am living in that house with my children.
I have learned to be strong in whatever I am passing through. You should also be strong in what you are passing through.
“Women are like teabags. We don’t know our true strength until we are in hot water.”

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.
