True Grit

What is GRIT? Grit is having PASSION and PERSISTENCE. GRIT is having STAMINA to stick it out day in and day out. The women in our programs have TRUE GRIT.

The women rise early in the morning to prepare their household for the day. They prepare their children for school and spouse for work. The women labor in their garden to provide food for their families. Our women are often the ones generating the main income into their household-selling used clothing, soaps/hygiene care products, rice, beans or produce from their gardens at the market.

They truly are the definition of STRENGTH, DIGNITY and GRIT.
