  1. This is a big stride taken by the african women considering the fact that they are the ones who suffer the most.i once saw a video clip of a woman in garrisa who was close to death and had a one weak old baby,because of hunger,i was so moved that i decided to take up a course in community development in order for me to have an avenue of providing any assitance that i can give to people like her.this is a really encouragin step for me by all those who participate in such initiatives.i salute you my moms and i hope to join you some day
