Women leading the way


“Now I am a deacon in my church”

In Burundi’s Buye Diocese, Sylvia is having a new lease of life. Through her Mothers’ Union literacy programme, she accessed counselling which helped her communicate better with her husband and look after own health. Today she’s the leader in her household, running a business and earning respect.

This Mothering Sunday, make your gift one which lets a woman live to her strengths.

“I used to be beaten every day by my husband, but he learned to respect me, and we now live in peace. We eat three meals a day, and my children go to school. And because I came out of poverty my husband respects me. In the community I am among the decision makers, and now I am a deacon in my church.”
