Maria Mboene – Mozambique

Maria Mboene – Mozambique

Maria Mboene is a woman who suffered verbal violence from her husband because she grew up believing that once a woman is married she has to respect and stay with the husband no matter what happens in the house. She did know about her rights, she could not do anything but stay at home suffering in silence.

In 1983 her husband left her with six children to take care of. From that moment Maria had to choose between getting another man to sustain her and her kids and finding a way to survive by herself. Because she did not want to go through all the things she had been through with her former husband, she chose to start a business

Joaquina Namburete – Mozambique

Quando fui para a vereação da Á¡rea do Género, Criança e Acção Social saindo da Escola SecundÁ¡ria onde eu leccionava a disciplina de quimica, uma das coisas que mais me cativaram foi trabalhar com mulheres e crianças vulnerÁ¡veis incluindo idosos. O meu contacto com esta classe social pemitiu que eu me interessasse mais em explorar a sua condição social e aprofundar mais o relacionamento com ela.

Gloria Titos – Mozambique

“I would like to thank Gender Links for the work that has been done in empowering women with business skills, not only in Mandlakazi, but also in other councils. Although I recognise what GL has done and is still doing, I encourage GL to extend the programme for more councils because, based on my experience, there are many women out there who need to be trained in order to grow socially and economically. GL should continue training, monitoring and evaluating as it is doing now to see and listen to the changes happening in women’s lives”.

Rosa Pita Joaque – Mozambique

Rosa Pita Joaque – Mozambique

Rosa Pita Joaque was a happily married woman with six children.

In 1995 her husband told her he was going to Beira to look for better conditions for the family, but he never came back. After her husband’s disappearance, life got worse by the day, because she was under educated, jobless and had 6 children to care for. Without expecting it she was now the leader of the family. Being a mother without a husband is very difficult in her culture. Without a job or someone to count on and with society judging her, her life was a living nightmare. Despite all the negative things people told her, Rosa new that her kids needed her, so she started selling cakes and cool drinks to sustain her family.
