Mamsi makes a return
Mamsi lives with her husband and elderly mother in Sikhunyani village. Mamsi was one of the most active members of the group and really missed the regular time working alongside the other women in the community.
When SALP began working with the group to revitalise and scale up their vegetable production, Mamsi was one of the first members excited to see their old garden be given a new lease of life.
Soon the members were not just back at work in the garden but also back in their morning routine of walking through the village and collecting each member along the way down to the garden.
Working thoroughly while talking with other group members, Mamsi is often found leading the daily work, involved in weeding, watering and harvesting the vegetables.
The hard work has begun to pay off. “There is big difference between this garden and the previous one. In this garden we have very big site where we can plant different type of vegetables. Our community is big and we will be known in the whole villages and other villages," she says.
