Zum Zum Zum – Stand for Her Land


“Zum Zum Zum” is a children’s song in Tanzania that mimics the sound of bees. But it’s also a metaphor for the countless hours of work by millions of women — planting, tilling, and harvesting crops, collecting water, and preparing food that feeds millions. Dr. Monica Mhoja, Landesa Outreach Director for Africa, and Hellen Bulugu, an award-winning poet and activist from Tanzania, give voice to the millions of women who are calling out for the one thing they need most — a piece of land of their own.
