Ongoing Collaboration: Soy Project

Picture4Very exciting! Neeta Singh who first went to Bukoba, Tanzania to work with Women’s Global Connection and BUWEA in 2008, will return this July to continue collaborating with the women on their sustainable project of producing and marketing tasty and healthful soy products. It will be amazing to hear her stories of how much the women have accomplished in the past 6 years leading to women’s empowerment and economic development, as well as nutrition programs for children.
