CARE is partnering with coffee companies in PNG to promote women's involvement in the industry.
Charles and Stella participated in this program and were taught how to correctly look after their coffee plants, how to create a budget and the importance of sharing chores and financial decisions.
Stella and Charles now run meetings with other families in their community to pass on the training they received from CARE. Stella says, "In these meetings I discuss CARE’s training and how the coffee yield has increased. I also discuss that it’s not just the woman’s job to do chores, but the husband’s as well." 📸 : John Hewat/CARE
The International Day of the Girl Child just went by, bringing with it a fresh bout of issues and gaps to address with respect to women's access to equal opportunities. At IFMR LEAD, gender is a cross-cutting theme of all our work. We have worked on finclusion for gender, health for mothers, the impact of affordable daycares on women, and their decision-making power. And it just doesn't stop here! For a detailed list of our projects, visit our website (link in bio). Going forward, we aim to contribute as far as possible to the growing body of research in gender, and also to convert it into actionable policies - to make sure that every girl child, in the future, has as real a smile as the one plastered on this flower entrepreneur's face.

A different Monday morning message .....Every morning I walk the same path to the train ... every morning I don’t really look around me but this morning I looked down and took a closer look ... bronze cobblestones telling the story of a horrible time ... one family deported all killed in concentration camps the daughter survived in a hide out a neighbor killed as well and all this 1943 even still ... this did happen and this is all that remains of people who loved and lived and were brave and scared to death and stood up against Nazis .... tragic and not right ... with the current political climate it’s vital we remember what happened and what does happen when people abuse power and discard human rights and ethics .... if you are in Berlin and you see these stones send me place // cross street and an image... they are all over Berlin ... I will curate something with it.... much gratitude!! #humanity #memorial #berlin #stopfacism #stones #allthatremains #fucknazis #equality #peace #think #saysomething #standup

The bravest thing you can be is yourself 💜
You’re more than your physical, appearance, gender, and relationship status. You are a soul with a beautiful purpose 💜
Every moment is a given moment ... You haven’t earned it. You haven’t brought it about in any way. You have no way of assuring that there will be another moment given to you. And yet that’s the most valuable thing that can be ever be given to us - this moment, with all the opportunity that it contains. If you don’t know what to do - Gratitude is a good place to start. You’ve got this! 💜
Life’s too short to be anyone but yourself 💜
What are u looking’ at? 🧐
Hey ... it doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful. It’s your kind of wonderful! You’ve got this! 💜
