Our ladies arrived bright and early anxious to start the day. We opened up with prayer, followed by a hilarious game that Anne had organized. Mostly all of our ladies participated in it, and we had a good laugh.
Jennifer (one of our widows) gave a short devotion to start the morning off. Mary Anne followed and spoke on certain aspects of their Health- ulcers, infections and high blood pressure.
Godfrey, our guest speaker from OAF ( One Acre Fund) explained what their program is about and the benefits of working with them to help them produce better crops. Pamela (one of our widows) and Aggrey our field partner gave a short talk as to how OAF has been a beneficial resource for them.
There were speakers from our widow group who have taken the Adult Education and Basic Business training and they shared what they learnt with the ladies and encouraged them to take the courses themselves.
Lunch was served and all thoroughly enjoyed Nasi and juice, which was followed by ice cream. It was wonderful to spend time with each other and also to learn from one another. It is such a treat to see the unity, friendship, and help they give to one another through VOH.
Mudding a Hut
Anne, Lydia, Debbie, Wendy & Sue had the enjoyable task of helping one of our widows mud her hut. The locals enjoyed our help and we had many good laughs. How wonderful to work side-by-side on a project! We were told we did a great job! We were all thankful to be able to have hot showers when we returned to our “home”!
