Rose Rajbansee…82 and still going strong

Eighty-two-year-old retired school teacher Rose Rajbansee is an institution in her home town of Plum Road Village, Manzanilla. The long-time community activist, advocate and volunteer has given her life to helping people in her area by promoting rural women’s challenges and empowering women to enhance their economic and social well-being.

“Miss Rose” or “Mum” as she is affectionately known by members of the community gives advice and counselling free to people who come to her landmark home which is still used as a community centre of sorts like in the old days where residents would meet to discuss issues affecting them.
