Tough as leather, she goes through every hardship and burden that comes her way. She is a fighter that never gives up. She is strong and not easily injured.
She sleeps after every one else and wakes up before any one does. She prepares a meal for her husband, prepares the children for school and makes milk for the little one.
With a baby on her back, she picks up her hoe and sets off to the fields.She feeds the cattle, breast feeds her baby,tills the land and sell the produce in the market.
While all this is happening, she sometimes forgets to take a meal till end of day.
She is an African Woman. The thread that holds a family together.
