They live in refugee camps, remote villages, distant townships in areas of the world that are considered volatile and challenging. In some instances, the women are left to single handedly support their families, their men having disappeared or died in conflict. In others, the women work closely with their men and together they create family enterprises that support their dignity and well-being.
