“We are strong minded women, visionaries, we can do it!” - Eron Namwebya, Uganda
Eron recently shared her story of transformation on a local radio station. She said, "What an able bodied person can do, so can I. I am educating my children and all of them are in school from my own toil."
Eron is extremely ambitious. When our extension staff visit her she never misses an opportunity to ask questions about how she can improve her farm. She says, "Men fear me now - I am a woman with money! I was vulnerable but not now. I have proved I can make use of the land - before everyone use to think because I am disabled I can't do anything. I want to prove we can earn big money and do big things."
Eron has big plans for the future;
“We have plans as a group to rear pigs. Pigs eat cassava - people pay little for cassava but we can rear piglets for two weeks and earn 60,000 USh (£11.60.) We are strong minded women, visionaries, we can do it! Thank you to the Ripple Effect staff who love us, teach us and have shown us that they care. We have now moved to a point of celebration.” - Eron Namwebya, Uganda
