During these workshops she learnt a lot about gender based violence and as we speak she is aware and assertive about issues of gender and human rights. It was unbelievable, but with grace she won the battle and even now quite a number of women ask her how she managed to survive that abusive relationship. She is... [read more]

We started the entrepreneurship training with the “I” story workshops. It was very painful when people were sharing their stories and I could feel that my story was not as bad.

I have shared my experiences about gender violence and how it can be overcome with people from my community.

I was very excited and scared to be told that I would be representing my area at the Botswana national summit at Gaborone.
