Women Empowerment

Championing the cause of the marginalised women in society

Introduction

A mini meeting was done with the women who were present at the Goat fare held in Gokwe South on the 29th of June 2016. The aim of the meeting was to have an understanding of income generating projects being done by the women of Sai in order to improve their living conditions. Most of the women indicated that they were into ISALs, Rabbit Keeping, and Interior D├ęcor.

 

Projects

They then highlighted that the profits they obtain from the projects is shared equally among all members whilst some inferred that they would buy groceries and kitchen ware. Nevertheless, it was noted that they had no idea as to how they could prosper further or to increase their profits. Mrs Ncube the Managing Director of Michview Enterprises was leading these discussions hence she advised the women to engage in more income generating projects especially that of goat keeping. The following table illustrates the different groups of women present in Gokwe South and the description of their groups.
