In mid-March Empowered Voices conducted a survey in the five villages we operate and the response was overwhelming. The local team consisting of our fantastic women, did a wonderful job walking from household to household gathering information that will be of enormous help for the projects in the community.
Julie, our local project manager sent us this message after the first day had come to an end:
"This has been the most exciting experience I have had in this community ever since. Just imagine, women, thought to be semi-illiterate or so, storming the whole neighborhood as a "literate survey team" within its own community! Amazing! What would be more empowering?"
As you can imagine we were super excited and happy! In total, data from 250 households was collected and they are now working on quality control and compiling the raw data electronically. We will come back with results and analsis later. For now you can enjoy these beautiful photos!
