Hello again REDES followers. This week we will hear the words of another Mozambican facilitator who works with young women in the province of Zambezia, in Northern Mozambique. I will let Cristina speak for herself, first in Portuguese then translated into English:

Chamo-me Cristina Jorge Sande.  Sou Formadora de teatros e facilitadora da REDES no distrito de Mopeia.  Há 03 anos de existência já participei nas trocas de experiencia, a conferencia da REDES e já facilitei a REDES em Nicoadala, Morrumbala, Mopeia, Quelimane, Mocuba e também em Alto Molocue.

My name is Cristina Jorge Sande. I am a theatre trainer as well as a REDES facilitator in Mopeia district. For the 3 years that REDES has been in my district I have participated in meetings, experience exchanges, the REDES conferences, and I have facilitated sessions in Nicoadala, Morrumbala, Mopeia, Quelimane, Mocuba and also in Alto Molocue.
