Women’s work

It is uncommon for women to work on the farm in Java – its a men’s world! However, the women want to work, to earn money and to do something productive. I sat with on of the men a few weeks ago and asked him to watch the men working and then watch the women working and see which ones seemed more productive. It was obvious to me but he did not want to admit it! The women work consistently and efficiently and they take on jobs men couldn’t handle.

We are establishing a womens crew which comes with wages and incentives and we have a new team leader, Sari!
