it is possible

am so greatful to know that women no matter the situation they face they can help other women.
just a few months ago i happpen to attend a meeting involving youth and i was so moved by a story shared by one of the women living with HIV in Embu district that is within my locality in Kenya despite being discriminated at first she has helped many other women realise how important it is to share and accept youself.
right now am looking forward to helping other women who are like her by sharing ideas and starting a project that will help them get some income.
they will be making some mats, cards drawing and also growing some seedlings i will train them how to go about. i will also help them get market by looking for customers.
what i believe is us as women we are called to help each other and help develop society and bring positive change. with a great spirit open mind and taking massive action it is possible.
