Cattle owners would give a woman a calf to feed. The pay was 10 rupees a month. When the calf was fat and ready for the market the owner reclaimed it. The woman then was given another calf to raise For 14 years that has been the life-style of the women. Today the village of widows is undergoing a change.

Work with the village of widows is only part of the aid CIDA is giving in Mauritius. Time also has changed the village. It now numbers about 250 people. Some of the women originally in the village have remarried. The children from the first marriages also have married and started families. May Graduate Darcie Anne daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.A.
