Mama Madina Featured

Mama Madina doesn’t remember how old she is, she says that more than 60. She had 10 sons, but two have already died. She tells us that no one would hire a woman her age, and, even less, a woman who cannot read or write.

She is very happy with the new sandals project, because she realizes that her job is important. Her job is to apply glue on the different pieces, to dye the materials and to apply wax to polish the sandals and make them look shiny.

With the salary she is earning she can bring food home and buy medicines for her sick husband. It also allows her to pay for the schools of her sons and she can even send one of them to high school.
