This year, we celebrated Mother’s Day at our Ngoma production site by inviting our team’s children to tour the facility and enjoy in some special treats. We asked their children what they most appreciate about their mothers, and their responses (and photos) are too charming not to share!
Barbara, age 4
“I like my mother because she buys me puppets and a bicycle.”
Igor, age 8
“I am proud of my foster mother (Aunty) because she continuously helps me to improve my class scores and because of her efforts this term I was ranked the third of my class.”
Bella, age 6
"I am proud of my mother and my family because they respect me."
Our mothers had their turn too to share what is most meaningful to them about working at SHE.
Nadine and her daughter Barbara, age 4
"I am inspired to go to work everyday because I am producing something helpful for girls and women."
Marie Louise Umulisa with her children
" I didn’t feel comfortable to talk about menstruation and pads, but now that I produce them I feel comfortable and confident to talk about both menstruation and using pads."
Sandrine and her children
"The most meaningful part of my work is that I proudly use the product that I have produced myself!"
Thanks to our working moms are doing to make a lasting impact for their children and for their communities! Happy Mother’s Day!
