RINA AANDATTI KIANGA
At the age of 5 years old, my life came with great difficulties.
My mom was an alcoholic cooker who did everything in the rain. The police officers would catch her and bring her to the police station, but it never could stop my mama from doing business.
It was our family’s main income, and we had to eat and pay for school fees, clothing, and other basic needs.
Something that was surprising is that my mom was jailed for one year. It was because of doing the business.
“The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.”

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.
