Right now, our women are delicately tending to their fields where seeds have just been planted - these seeds are incredible symbols of hope and opportunity for a better future. The women will wait patiently until January when, for the first time, they will begin to earn a livable income from the harvest.
Most women are currently earning approximately $.087 per day. In January, their income will shoot to upwards of $4.00 per day. By U.S. standards this does not sound like much, but for poor families in Rwanda it is literally the difference between being able to afford basic necessities like food, education and healthcare - and not.
