Thanks to their jobs, these women are on the road to self-sufficiency. They can cover basic expenses such as rent, school fees, healthcare, food ... without any help from anyone else.

"Fighting hard to break down stereotypes"!!! How incredibly brave the Congolese women are. It would not be an easy task, but finding the courage to assume the dignity they're entitled to, and proving that they are actually more capable than their menfolk, deserves our support.

Noted & posted. I don't care what the lackeys say. I will keep funding microfinance and women's education and clean water programs until the desired change is affected. I will settle for nothing less.
