Hi William Lanier thank you for your comment. Yes, this is absolutely something we would seriously consider. If we can combine efforts to create income for the women in and around Mzuzu offering these much needed services that would be great.
Thank you for your comment and question. The women's community centre will offer all women and girls general support on as many levels as possible, as a safe and positive place for them to gather and participate. If you have an idea in mind regarding the type of support you think the youth in question require please let us know as I would love to be able to help if we have the means to do so. At present, there is no reason to suggest we could not include delivering educational sessions on moisture testing services within the Mzuzu area, if that is something the youth would be willing to get involved in. The community centre has potential to provide some level of learning/training space. Your thoughts on this and more are most welcome. Kind regards, Hetti
