Thank you!

We are so grateful for the donations you've given towards this project! 

A 12-year old girl, Promise, who is being looked after by an elderly woman named Roda Dube received two female rabbits from AFCA.  Promise says she loves the rabbits and since they received the rabbits, she now has something exciting to look forward to when she comes home. She has been learning how to take care of her animals and has learned to take them to the community leader where male rabbits are housed in order to control breeding.  

Already, her rabbits have had babies and her family has re-gifted two to another family, just four months after initially receiving her gift.  Now, any rabbits born are hers to keep, to sell, to eat, or to barter.  The manure is used in a small garden she, her siblings and Ms. Dube have planted using AFCA seeds.  The bunnies benefit from some of the greens while the children and Ms. Dube benefit from carrots, turnips, spinach, onions, tomatoes, peanuts, and other veggies they are growing and harvesting.

Truly, Promise's life has changed thanks to your generosity. 

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

We have no other words.

On behalf of Promise and the other children you've helped,
