When Fatchima was a child, she had no space to dream. Her life in rural Niger was a difficult mix of poverty, drought, and isolation. At age 14, her parents forced her to marry. Two decades ago, she began participating in a women’s financial empowerment program in her village. They call themselves Mata Masu Dubara (Women on the Move). Over time, she’s been able to save money and unlock a better future for her granddaughter, Nana, who now attends school and has dreams that Fatchima never had as a girl.
"Women on the Move" is an Oculus VR for Good project in conjunction with CARE.
