Women Economic Empowerment Through Legal Aid

on Apr 30,2018

The right to work anywhere is everyone’s right, but this is not the case for many women in rural areas. Shungi Yusuph, 33, was denied by her husband to work anywhere, although he didn’t earn enough to cater for the family needs. Shungi decided to seek help from outside to save her family. Paralegals at Mbozi district convinced the husband to let his wife work, as is her right, and he finally agreed. Shungi now works at the site where the headquarters for the new Songwe region is built. She now is catering for the family needs, did build a new house, and has started a small business for her husband.
