My name is Jesmi. My children are growing up in a safe place with a good environment in Basha’s day care. I have two daughters. They are learning many things. They are getting a good education from day care. They do many activities there and receive food that I couldn’t afford for them. They love kichuri (rice with lentils and vegetables) and fruits. I appreciate the fact that there are no men at Basha. Here the environment is safe for women. We don’t need to worry about our children. We can do our work here properly. Now my family members and community people respect me and ask me how am I doing at work and how my children are. They value me now. It makes me feel happy to see my daughters laughing, singing, dancing, and doing many activities.
