We left the Maman Shujaa Center at 8:50 and headed to Mumosho, arriving at 11:25. We were taken to the sewing room where the girls, mothers, were waiting for their lesson in family planning. The Maman Shujaa Center program director presented the young women ambassadors for peace and introduced Bénédicte Bulangalire, young ambassador for peace and instructor, who continued her family planning lesson, finishing this topic and moving on to a new subject: "Abortion and Marriage". Bénédicte Bulangalire immediately reviewed the lesson to see if the girls, mothers, had assimilated the information and could hold their own. Then the coordinator for SAFECO, Madam Neema Namadamu, spoke about family planning. She said that a woman, a girl, should understand the value of her body in order to take control of it, and not play around with her procreative part (her vagina), which gives a girl, a woman, value; she should know herself, that she is important. A woman has crucial value because ministers, presidents, governors, doctors, generals, etc. originate from her procreative part (her vagina).   

The second speaker was Madam Carole, our guest at the Maman Shujaa Center. She also talked about family planning, specifically how she and her husband plan and budget their family, spacing children at two, three, or five years apart. If she isn't ready, she can't have the child because this is an agreement she and her husband have. Then Madam Nehema Namadamu spoke in closing and thanked her. We actually started our play at 13:30; its subject was "We are all equal" and was about how women can also do something with their lives, in other words, about women's independence. The play ended at 17:56 and afterwards, the young women ambassadors for peace and three girls from Mumosho who performed with us were presented. In conclusion, Madam Nehema announced that our activities had come to an end this April until a new activity was organized, and Amani, director of the center in Mumosho, gave her thanks.

Hello Brigitte,

Thank you so much for sharing this event that the Mama Shujaa center was involved in. It sounds like everyone who participated in this event was able to hear about some really interesting and impactful subjects. I also wanted to comment on the photo that you posted and wanted to say how beautiful everyone is and how wonderful and colorful the fabric is for all the dresses. It is important to come together and talk and education others on these subjects. It helps to make connections, helps make voices more meaningful and impactful and starts to really create change when more people become involved. Thank you again for sharing and I look forward to hearing about more events that the Mama Shujaa community takes part in.

Sincerely,  Alyssa Rust
