Well, we’re back where computers work and we have regular Internet access!
On February 2 of this year we celebrated the 20th anniversary of our first income generating group – the Malambo Women’s Club. As February is the hunger month in Zambia, when last year’s harvest is eaten up and this year’s harvest not yet in, it was appropriate to celebrate with food. We held a food competition of traditional village cooking. FABULOUS! Our judges did an excellent job, and the prizes were enormous fish, brought from Siavonga.
See some of the celebrations, with a video of Mirriam celebrating of Mirriam celebrating! Mirriam, one of our original members who in her mid-eighties is rearing her grandchildren, makes her income by being a member of this applique group as well as being a member of one of our chicken rearing groups. In the background you can hear the crowd ululating.
