Meetings for women in Tanzania

Sister Helena began her work with women in Chikukwe in southern Tanzania. This is our new activity in the region. Sister Helena wants to help the women of the village in various ways with their life problems and difficulties. So far, she has sought out such women by visiting villagers. Now she and Sister Aloysia are organizing meetings for women at the sisters’ convent. The group’s meetings will be held on Thursdays, and on other days of the week the sisters will visit the women in their homes. At the meetings, the women will learn how to sew and cook, and with these chores they will be able to talk about their problems and daily life. The first meeting has already taken place and the participants enjoyed it very much. They promised to bring their girlfriends to the next meeting.
