REHEMA 01: Rehema Mkakilwa, one of the girls in Utosi Village of Mufindi District in Iringa Region. She has managed to persuade her father to give her a land. Thanks to efforts by CSOs working on landrights, she now owns it. In most of the communities in Iringa Region, girls have no right to own land.
