"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." -African Proverb
"Investing in women means investing in the people investing in everyone else." -Melinda Gates
African women are strong and courageous, working tirelessly to care for their children. Transformed for Life believes in supporting these strong women so that they can in turn pour back what they have learned and received into their families. Transformed for Life has weekly women's programs each week. In these programs we focus on talking and training about the challenges that these women face. Focus areas for these programs include: Trauma, abuse, domestic violence, health, nutrition, family, parenting, marriage, conservation, business and agriculture. When possible, we also bring in police or other organisations to help connect them to service providers and to better understand their rights. Transformed for Life staff also conducts home visits each week to meet with families and to build stronger relationships on a personal level. Each week the program concludes with a meal before women head back to their homes. Some women walk up to 22 kilometers to come to the programs each week!
