In all the countries where ActionAid works, one of the most effective ways of helping women is by bringing them together. And Zimbabwe is no exception. In Chiendembuya District, ActionAid has formed 18 women’s groups that give women the opportunity to learn new skills and develop projects to improve their lives.
One of these women is Brandina. Thanks to child sponsorship she has been given the opportunity to earn a living, and as a result she can now support her niece (pictured below) through school. This is their story.
