Many people are now committing suicide, leaving their families without any support. When walking around the villages, you’ll find that numbers of women are widows without husbands, and other children are left alone without parents. Other men are always drunk, escaping their duties in the family.
“The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.”

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.
