A group of reformed alcoholic women from Nandi dupped ‘Kebulonik reformed women group’ have expressed their joy and happiness after reaping huge from the work of their hands through farming.
Speaking to the media in Kebulonik village Sang’alo ward during their harvesting period of the Irish potatoes, a project which was sponsored by the National agricultural and rural growth project(NAGRIP) by the county government of Nandi, the group urged women who are still languishing in illicit brews to drop it and turn to farming as it is the only way of earning a living within the shortest time possible.
They revealed that they were in dark moments before the county government of Nandi came to their rescue and empowered them to venture into farming thus very grateful for the milestones they have achieved, urging women to come out and transform their lives for a better future.
“We started it by receiving a water pump generator, rolls of horse pipes, construction materials and a digital weighing scale for the construction of a warehouse or storage facility after submitting our proposals to the county government of Nandi.” They said.
The women group revealed that since they reformed from alcoholism, their lives have changed a lot as they are now able to put food on their tables and educate their children without much strain. They went ahead to urge other alcoholic ladies to bury the vice and move forward to transform their lives fully.
The agriculture executive committee member for Nandi Hon Bernard Lagat lauded the efforts of the women group for working tirelessly to change their lives from brewing valley to farming urging other women to learn and copy the same from them.
