Getrude Gets a Store

Getrude is a very hard working woman. Whenever there is a job to be done she is first in line to volunteer. A leader on our Neighbourhood Health Committee, she comes to town for meetings at the Kabundi Clinic to arrange things such as a mobile under 5 health clinic, to visit our remote Mbayi monthly in order to weigh babies and give vaccinations. When we needed a cook for our school feeding program, she was there and continues to help out. Head of our mamies group, she helps me with organization and administration of activities. So when she told me of her desire to open a small store in her area of Mbayi I considered her request very seriously. As you can see from the photos she is on her way—the store constructed, starting supplies purchased. I knew she would make it a great success and she has!

Thank you so very much contributors to Part of the (im)Possible. You have empowered yet another needy person, improved the life of an impoverished yet strong very capable woman.
