WATERFALLS women have embarked on self-help projects in an effort to fight the ever rising prices of basic commodities.
Women drawn from various church denominations are meeting every day at RECFEMI church premises where they are being trained to make bar soaps, toilet sanitisers, washing powder, washing paste, shampoo, bath gel, petroleum jelly, cobra, domestos, concentrated drinks, perfumes and dish washers.
The project has benefited more than hundred families so far since it started two months ago.
One of the beneficiaries Hazvinei Munjoma hailed a local Pastor Hazvinei Muchefa for coming up with the idea to empower women and bring food on their tables.
“We are benefiting a lot from the trainings being carried here to empower women and this is helping us much in making sure we have food on table,” said Munjoma.
“It is a brain child of one of our local pastor Muchefa who made a door to door campaign against poverty and this helped wiped sorrows and tears among most families.
“Prices are changing in most shops daily and we have found a better way of arresting the situation by making the basic commodities every woman would need in her house.
“The training is open to everyone including those who are outside Waterfalls since our vision is to fight the rising costs of basic commodities,” she said.
