Meet Bertha #lastingchange #iwd2014

This week, to celebrate International Women's Day #iwd2014 founding Honkettes,Tanya, Annie and Penny are in Tanzania. They are there finding out how donations to Comic Relief last year have created female entrepreneurs and #lastingchange for women, their families and communities and beyond - rippling out #lastingchange in Africa.

This is a Bertha. She is a food producer in Dar es Salaam who has received support from the Gatsby Trust. Bertha makes three different types of wine, garlic paste and a flour used to make porridge. In addition to making products she is also now training other women to do the same. Bertha works from a processing plant that she built herself at the back of her property, with room dedicated to each part of her business.

What can you do?
Team Honk is about bloggers raising money and awareness for Comic Relief.
But it doesn't stop at blogging.
