C.G. stands for Cawwaaqee Guuttatta

Cawwaaqee Guuttatta

Cawwaaqee was a woman who got married against her will, essentially kidnapped and forced to

stay with her husband. Cawwaaqee did not have any right to stand up for herself; she had no choice but

to endure the hardship of walking 10/15 kilometers to gather fire wood, gather coffee beans for sale,

fixing food and taking care of the needs of her kids on her own, all while working on a farm.

Cawwaaqee worked real hard and raised her two children on her own alongside four other children and

six grandchildren. Her strength, determination and hard work brought light into her children’s and

grandchildren’s lives.

C.G. Women’s Empowerment (“CGWE”) believes that empowering women to be key

agents of change is an essential element to achieving the end of hunger and poverty. Women

bear almost all responsibility for meeting the basic needs of the family, yet they are

systematically denied the resources, information and freedom of action they need to fulfill this

responsibility.
