The Galana Amani Women’s group are a group of women from the Galana area who have come together to continue their education and learn new skills with the support of Friends From Ireland. Friends From Ireland have been working in the Galana area since 2012 and through our projects have gotten to know some of the ladies in the area. It was clear to us that these were strong, determined women with huge potential who were eager to learn and better themselves, but were lacking the necessary resources to do so. In September 2014, we held our first local women’s meeting. This was hugely successful with approx. 34 women attending.
