Support women in East Africa
Tearfund Germany supports women in Balimataan, a drought-stricken village in southern Somaliland, East Africa. These women have joined forces to form self-help groups where they are able to pool their resources and provide small loans to one another. The ability to access these financial resources allows then to start new businesses that will enable them to build better life for them and their families. . We have seen the power of these small groups as these new income streams have allowed families to feed their hungry children and send them to school, some for the first time.
