A beautiful village carpets the foot hills of Mt. Mbulu in Northern Tanzania. Water streams flow down the mountain into this attractive village. Magugu village is quiet and the streets are empty except for a few chickens running around and kids playing soccer. It’s almost the rainy time of year and people are working on their farms preparing for the season.
Lucia Abel (60) is a farmer that lives in Magugu and has raised seven children on her own. She remembers when her husband abandoned her when she was three months pregnant.
