On International Women's Day, with the theme "Rural and urban actors, together, transform women's lives", the Family Department organized training sessions through the teaching of the manufacture of soap for the women of FECABU Kinama, FECABU Carama and FECABU Cibitoke.
The different steps followed for the manufacture of soap:
1. Preparation of the mixture
The preparation consists in mixing the acid, palm oil and dye products in accordance with the measures.
The trainer showed the ladies how to mix and in their turn, they did the practice.
2. The actual manufacture
This is then poured into the plastic trays that we see in the photos. Everyone follows the whole process and practise doing it themselves - it is not difficult to learn. At the final stage, we wait for the soap to set.
The women expressed their joy through songs and dances saying that they have just found a product that will give them a life because they had felt like people without hope, having nothing. They had such difficulty to paying rent and meeting family needs.
