Soap and Sugar: Entrepreneurs of Dar es Salaam!

Soap and Sugar: Entrepreneurs of Dar es Salaam!

We visited the second site of ACHAMA's work to free girls from sex work and heard a wonderful story. A group of them had learned how to make soap products through ACHAMA's program. With the revenue from that enterprise they shifted their attention to selling sugar. It has been so successful that they have now established a bank account and have plans to expand. They are only 16 or 17 years old! And the leader of the group proudly showed us plans for her church to build a building. Of course we all bought some sugar from these inspiring entrepreneurs!
