English translation by PulseWire member sarahplew

Despite the difficulties of responsible mothers in society, they take care of everything. If they had enough financial support, they could develop effectively and productively. But through community work, there are acquaintances, love, respect, collaboration in their society. Often, they are discouraged by the condition of life that they are facing as the responsible ones for their society. Really the responsible one, they do not know what to do to surpass these problems. Thank you.

Glad

Dear Hamisi,
I'm glad that you shared your thoughts here at World Pulse. I absolutely agree with you that mothers are one of the crucial drives for development (and could be even more so, if the setting would allow for it). I'd be very happy to read more from you, your thoughts and experiences at home.
Warm regards,
Katharina

I agree too

Dear hamisi, i wholeheartedly agree with what you say a bout women being the responsible one in this society of ours.
it brings me back to the life of an African woman....worse of all a village woman who triples the work load of her husband
IN my village for instance the couple will go to the garden, on return the woman who incidentally is as tired as the man will not have a rest but continue with household cores,..go to the well, look for food to make, gather fire wood and ant other thing one can think of depending on the season, so from morning to sunset no rest AND with such glaring issues men will not appreciate the work burden of a woman...its simply discouraging and disillusioning!
its hard in our community to break this circle.
any way what and how are women involved in small trade in your community, you women out there do not have lose you sense of self worth. women in my ctry have taken up with petty trade as a means of supplementing on household needs, income and a forum to meet other women where they get to exchange all sorts of ideas be it...business or social and help them create friendships. life is definitely cruel for women, concentrate in creating a niche for your selves and let not the conditions there disillusion but make you for the better...
thank you and take care.

rising through community and cooperation

Dear Hamisi,
Thank you for reminding us of the crucial role mothers play in society, and in the development of humane, nurturing societies. The world needs to be reminded of this daily, and women need to take heart in the truth of this through helping each other bear the weight of all the responsibilities -- and rise! We all need the support of brothers and sisters in big and small ways alike for the responsibilities are many and the burdens heavy. Thank you again for reminding us of the crucial role of mothers in society. Keep speaking out!

Dear Hamisi, Like all

Dear Hamisi,

Like all commentators up there, i appreciate the fact that you understand what women have to go through to maintain their standard of living, and sometimes that of their families. Indeed, financially support is needed because i believe money is power.

However i suggest that instead of waiting for someone to come help (which may never happen), women should learn to cope and devise ways of attaining the financial standard they so desire. This can be done by for example forming small saving groups, and starting income generating activities however small they may be. These among other many examples can help elevate their standard of living.

Cheers

Sandra
