Community education driving change
The afternoon light is soft and dappled as it strains to make its way through the foliage of the trees. A group of women arrive and enter through the small gateway in the bamboo fence and make their way to the center of the dirt courtyard surrounded on either side by two small bamboo houses. They are joining a group of 8 women who are already seated along a stretch of orange tarp laid out along the ground. The women greet each other with smiles and quietly find a place to sit.
The women look expectantly towards one end of the courtyard where posters have been strung up and a collection of crops and kitchen supplies are sitting on the ground ready for use.
