A Hard-Working Widow

Harowayo Village, Ethiopia

Meet Dido, a 57-year-old woman living in Harowayo Village. Sadly, her husband died five years ago. She has only one son, who is living in Mersabet, on the Kenyan side. She lives alone and some of the villagers are helping her with different needs.

When GHNI-Ethiopia first entered Harowayo Village, Dido was selected by village leaders during the formation of different groups for Transformational Community Development (TCD). She is one of the women who received three goats from the GHNI Income Generation Group. Dido is a hard worker and recently requested membership in the Agriculture Group. The group members accepted her request, and she has become an Agriculture Group member. Dido also has her own farm in back of her house.
