Through Ti Fwaye, mothers like Juliana and Rosemita are learning how to best keep their children healthy and strong through this crisis. Ti Fwaye’s companion program, Jaden Mwen (“my garden”), is also providing much-needed support for women and their families. In Jaden Mwen, a local agronomist teaches women how to grow their own produce at home. The participants can then use their produce to cook healthy meals, and can sell the surplus in local markets to help generate income.
“The Ti Fwaye program is very important because there are many things we didn’t know, and now we know how to take [better] care of ourselves and our children,” says Juliana. Rosemita agrees, saying, “When I came to the Ti Fwaye program, I saw how I could feed my daughter differently. Now she has become healthy and gains weight rapidly.”
Together, Ti Fwaye and Jaden Mwen are empowering women to be leaders in their communities and in their families.
