By Secelela Balisidya, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
The ten women who have started implementing their green voices project after coming back from Madrid, Spain in March 2016, have produced other 250 women in three months of implementing their projects. The produced women are now fully participating in the projects.
This was possible because each of the ten women after coming back created a group of women in the villages where they implement their projects and fully involve them in the project implementation.
The women and the five journalists are implementing various projects to face climate change through different adaptation and mitigation measures that suit to their environment and by use of media to create awareness on how to face climate change.
These women are Mariam Bigambo doing beekeeping in Mvomero District in Morogoro, Abia Magembe implementing drought resistant crops project speciffically cassava value chain in Kitanga village in the coast region, and Magdalena Bukuku working on oyster mushroom project in Boko and Bunju in Dar es Salaam.
Others are Leocadia Vedastus farming orange fleshed sweet potatoes in Ukerewe District in Mwanza, Evelyn Kahembe- fruit tree planting in Uvinza district in Kigoma, Monica Kagya – beekeeping with villagers surrounding Pugu and Kazimzumbwi Forest Reserve in Kisarawe, Sophia Mlote working on vegetable growing in a green house in Kinyerezi Dar es Salaam, Farida Makame a research based project on preferred solar cooker in Kilimanjaro, Esther Natai working on value added vegetable products using solar drying technology in Mzinga ward in Morogoro and Regina Kamuli working on making of fuel efficient stoves in Mkuranga district.
Before the launch of the Green Voices project in July 11th 2016, in the evening of 10th July 2016 the ten women together with the five journalists and the Women for Africa Foundation President H.E Maria Tereza Fernandes de la Vega and the other three Foundation staff, together celebrated the achievement at Serena Hotel in Dar es Salaam.
Green Voices had every reason to celebrate at that evening for this big achievement obtained within a short time of three months.
