How young women lead women groups and saves women's lives her town

Susu Mohamed
Posted January 23, 2021 from Somalia

I am young single mother of 5 children, Humanitarian Aid worker engaged empowering women, girls and advocacy women and girl’s issue in Somalia.

For the past thirty years in Somalia have been victimized civil war, bombing repeated draughts and food shortages however existing public service such, Hospitals, Education centers, Microfinance, and large Business which are the backbone of Somalia Women 90% as a result to non-available opportunity women to participate from their role of politics in Somalia.

Our Activities include: small projects such as Livelihood (self Help-groups), Supporting selling Women Tea, cash for work and Training Awareness Assisting Education centers. We have been implementing small programs such as small business women and we give each person 500 grant cash to start a small business and then support her family so we select women from vulnerable people and from IDPs Camps. as the country of work is small and men often sit on the street.

Deka Abdi Aden, is women aged 39 years have 9 children as you see the picture she is our community she is part group Self-Help groups 15 groups who received cash grant 500 (five hundred dollars Only). last October 2020.she is very happy and said: - before starting this business may children was eating one time a day and now I earn from this business 4 dollar per day and we are eating two times per day.

During our work we are facing challenges those challenge is 1- insecurity and we are working low profile if the security become unmanageable we will consider to work from home.

2-the other challenge that I am facing is to my people believing that the women is not nothing or can not do  any more and discriminate.

However, my visions and dreams is not one or two- my country, all women worldwide and girls, children, live with dignity and prosperity, means (to reduce Hungary, ignorance, discrimination insecurity and get women Lead) to have women leaders.as how beautifully they are connected to each other world pulse sisters.

I was very happy when Hillary Kiloton candidate for the US presidency and I Said my kids if Heller wins the election I will give you good cake while I am Somali I know if the world leads a women everything will be good because  We are woman’s strong, my side women Means: power Human being and life machine because women Learning, Teaching, working, Training, encouraging, participating, celebrating giving birth, caring of, feeding, cooking washing, Advising, Monitoring, and resisting, no one can take the role of Women, women are Everything.

Dear Susu,
This is the real work, the important work, and it is so encouraging to learn about what you are doing, and to see you standing here with a sister/woman whose life is now changed because of what you have been able to offer her. Money is kept from women, and it is exactly what we need to change. Your work is so important. I love seeing these photos.
In sisterhood,
Tam
