Annual celebration for women's activities

The annual closing ceremony for income generation/micro-enterprise projects for widows and vulnerable women brought interest from villagers, government officials, TV and radio stations from Ouagadougou. The Chief of Komsilga, Naba Boulga II, was the ceremony’s honoured official.

Women have proven they can become self-supporting. The proceeds from the sale of their products enables them to feed their children, purchase school uniforms and pay their children’s school fees.

The December 12 ceremony helped share ACTS vision for sustainability and underscore the accomplishments of the women.

Women celebrated the day joyfully in song, dance,  testimony and showing the products of their labor.

Women involved in the activities, gave testimony about their accomplishments during the ceremony and displayed their products in an exhibition under tents. It was an important confidence-building day for all the women.

Representing the 205 women, Laetitia said: “We are happy and thankful to God for this opportunity given to us to promote our products.

We would like to express our gratitude to ACTS because we are receiving technical and financial support in what we are doing. We are able to generate income which enables us to support our families in various ways. We are able to feed and pay school fees for our children and provide medical treatment for them when they are sick.

ACTS has enabled us to take positive steps to make our lives better. We are grateful for ACTS presence in the village.”
