Comments on the Seminar:
“I would like to thank the Mission for organizing such an educational sessions this year again. I have been part of various groups that supports women but I haven’t seen one that supports and empowers women as BMMK does. The dairy goat session during the workshop really inspired me. I will impart all what I have learnt to our group so that all members can benefit.” – Fatuma Achia, Lamkani Women Group Mackinnon Centre
