Women lead a hard life in Wusuraambya. They carry heavy loads from their gardens to their homes everyday because there is no refrigeration in the village.
Often they hike one or two hours one way to their gardens since they are inherited and not necessarily close to their bamboo huts.
Not only do the women carry vegetables but often we see them carrying firewood and a child along with the sweet potatoes, taro, and “greens”. Often the weight of what they are carrying exceed their body weight. They do not have shoes!
