English translation by PulseWire member sarahplew

I am Amina Lydia. I am a student at the Bwindi school. I am in my sixth year studying agriculture technique. I am the youngest of my family and the 8th child. I am happy in my family because my parents, my brothers, and my sisters support me morally, spiritually, and financially. I thank the Eternal to have filled my family with joy despite some problems that we come across.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Hello Amina

What a beautiful life you describe! Everyone has problems but being part of a loving family, one that supports all its members, makes even the hardest times worth the work to overcome them.

I am glad to have read your words. They made my heart feel good.

Agriculture techniques are more important topics today than ever before. We have too many people hungry in the world. Thank you for your hard work toward a brighter future for all of us!

Strength comes from love and respect

Salut Amina Lydia!

Thank you so much for sharing your feelings with us.

Your story stands as a great reminder that wealth is not always in material goods, but in having a loving and supporting family.

Everything is possible, when you have a support of the ones who loves you.

Thank you,
Marija
