WiLD Women Change Communities!

Please watch the video about Mona Shrestna, a 2003 WiLD campaign participant in Nepal. Mona is part of the Narayani Mahila Bachat Samuha, which translates as "Women's saving group." In a village where the men had owned everything, her group received two goats, which produced offspring to sell. Eventually, her group saved enough to open a shop and send children to school. The group is now in its fourth generation of offspring, and continuing to enrich the community.

"Before Heifer my life was filled with darkness. We were like slaves in our own homes." — Mona Shrestna

What a WONDERFUL way to support and empower women!
