The results show that thanks to the participation of women within the organization, the community now has access to health, electricity, drinking water, communication such as roads and other modalities. The results show that women who are members of this organization are not victims of discrimination or violence within the movement. They can participate in all activities and play any role inside or outside the organization. They have a much better than some who are not members of the organization economic situation.
