Uncle Tarirai was born on in October 1940. He got married in 1964. His wife was born in 1947. They two had eleven children but they have lost six already because of HIV/AIDS. He is taking care of three of his grandchildren whose parents are now deceased. Some of the other orphaned grandchildren are staying with relatives from the extended family.
The children are Leonard, Liberty, and Nyasha. Even though Tarirayi is seventy three years old, he is responsible for the three children’s welfare. Sadly, on March 18, 2013, his house was burnt by a fire which they could not traced and all his belongings were destroyed. Now, he is struggling to find blankets, clothes and other needed items for himself and his children.
They have benefited from the rabbits project under AFCA. Their hope now lies with the rabbits project. Tarirai is expecting nothing from his fields from the 2012-2013 agricultural season due to bad rains, but Tarirai hopes to see the rabbits multiply so he will sell some of the rabbits to buy food and pay school fees for the children.
