#TeamHonk Digital Card From Tanzania – Meet Joyce

I am sure you all remember my last year post when I was telling you about Team Honk amazing job in Ghana. Team Honk – Tanya, Penny and Annie with the helped of lots of other fellow bloggers done an amazing job last year and raised lots of money for the Comic Relief Charity.
This year it all gone super big an amazing! I am sure you all already know about the amazing team of 200 bloggers that carry a baton all the way through UK – 600 miles in only 6 weeks.
I am really sorry I couldn’t joined them but unfortunately I am out of UK at the moment. However I am trying to do my best through raising awareness through my tweets and blog posts.

As you might know today 8th of March is the International Women’s Day. All around the world women celebrate this day with flowers, wine and cheer. In Romania we celebrate mother’s especially too.

Team Honk is about bloggers raising money and awareness for Comic Relief. To celebrate International Women’s Day #IWD2014, Tanya, Annie and Penny are in Tanzania finding out how donations to Sport Relief last year have created female entrepreneurs and #lastingchange for women, their families and communities and beyond – rippling out #lastingchange in Africa.

JoyceThrough mentoring and training the Gatsby Trust have helped Joyce expand her poultry business from just a few chicks to now having 300.  She has also now built an extension to house another 400 which should be arriving next week.   The training that Joyce has received has enabled her to make her own feed, thereby saving her money, and also to ensure the feed is healthy.   It has also taught her to recognise signs of disease in her chicks to such an extend that she now has a completely healthy clutch.   Other poultry keepers in her area now phone her for advice and training.   The network of women is now in a much more powerful position to broker deals to sell to supermarkets as they can promise supply, which Joyce couldn’t do on her own. Joyce is supporting her family and is able to pay for her son to attend a boarding school.

Hearing so much about how this women in Tanzania made so much for their community with the help of Comic Relief and hundreds of women bloggers in UK makes me feel so proud I am a woman too. Can you believe that £22.000 were raised until now by these amazing women? And their work continues so I am sure that by the end of the campaign their will be lots more. 

Do you want to talk about inspiring woman in your life? Well you could do that through a blog post too. Although I didn’t do it yet you can still do it and join in with the blogging prompt on Team Honk Website.
