At the end of February Julious Abate, the Agriculture Officer with the Diocese of Liwolo, and the rest of the Savings and Agriculture teams held two Saving Conferences. The aim of these conferences was to share knowledge, tips and stories with the groups to inspire them and help them to continue growing in strength.
“The events were colourful, marked with lots of joy and excitement. Representatives from local authorities, religious leaders and other stakeholders all attended.
Bishop Joseph was able to give a brief background of how CRESS came in to support these projects with the Diocese of Liwolo, and ended his speech with a powerful word of God.
The attendance was 218 from Imvepi Refugee Settlement and 621 from Mijale area. Altogether, 839 group members attended.”
