INTERVIEW: Atua Vida (Twister)
I am 18 years of age and in class 6 at the local primary school. It has taken a long time to educate because of poverty, but I plan to finish senior high school.
I am not married and I have no children.
I have not done other work until now, other than helping my mother in the compound. I didn’t make any money before now, but I learned how to weave about 4 years ago.
The G-lish project has impacted my life a lot. I can pay for
- School sandals
- For my upkeep in school
I help support 2 other people from the income from twisting plastic twine.
We most urgently need a good hospital or clinic nearby.
My main personal challenges are purchasing my own clothes and footwear and being able to buy enough food for our family.
The G-lish project is a nice project because we didn’t know the other uses of plastic until now.
I would most like neem and mango trees for shade and fruit.
To our customers: I just want to tell them to continue to buy the recycled baskets so that we will continue to earn a living. They should try to buy more so that we can earn more money!
