working to help other women

Martha in Zambia has worked as a Nurse in different hospitals. She has also worked as an HIV counselor, and had started a preschool in her home. In 2014 she “retired” and now spends her time helping and educating vulnerable and abused women. She is working in a program that is paid for by your purchases from Africa Imports. Martha is shown here with her husband Rodwell who is spending his retirement farming to help support their family.

The women Martha works with have many serious needs. One of the hardest parts is that many women feel threatened and unable to do anything about it. Martha says: “I really want to see that women have a voice and know how to speak up for themselves”.
