This is Chido Govera. By the age of 11 she had already lost her mother to AIDs, become primary care-giver to her toddler brother, turned down an offer to marry a 36yo man and survived horrific abuse. Then she learned how to turn agricultural waste into mushrooms and suddenly this orphan girl became the most important person in the village. The power dynamics and the economics were thrown into complete disarray. If you like awesome women, doing awesome things, awesomely you should watch this.
