Orphans Need Somewhere to Call their Place

To me as her lady land has no great importance meaning, because we women we are
denied access to inheritance of land and yet still we have survived. Personally
our family has got a very small piece of land and has orphan we have made it,
we never depend on land because we know even the smaller one we have it will be
taken away. For those women who join their family members in fight for land i
would urge them to join me and together we shall say,

Without land we still have to attain our goals and make men realize that we
can bring a change. I believe that one day am going to raise a voice in our
country and try to make people understand that even orphans need to have
somewhere they can call their place, this is because when parents pass away
their kids are denied access to land their property, i strongly hope that i will
not die before i accomplish my vision.
