John 14 year lost his parents at the early age. Currently staying with his old grandmother who is 72 years. John is the man in the family of 5 members who includes his elderly grandmother. John before joining the Push me once project was on street, and was fetching water for members in the community in return of getting paid ( 200 shilling) or Food for his family,
John and his Family received a pair of pig seed last year which John concentrated all his energies to taking care of the pigs.
“I was always admiring children going to school, but me and my sister were at home with our old grandmother, no one cared for us. The 2 pigs changed our life when our pig produced 9 piglets at once after feeding it for 6 month things changed in away I don’t know. Because at the beginning of the year both me and my sister started going to school for the first time, selling 5 pigs was enough to pay for school fees and buy food for us for some time. I feed our animals and love them; they are part of our life, if they continue producing our 2 sister who are not in school will join. I thank the office and Mego Joyce for constructing for us the house for pigs and giving us 2 pigs as I talk now we have given back 2 pigs to the office so that other members can get the opportunity God will bless you”

“When we were in the bush, with my mother she was everything to me and was the only relative I had. I did not know my father and she also did not know she told me I don’t need to know how she conceived me which was so hurting to me. When we were rescued from the LRA, I thought that we will get a much more better life but my mother’s family sent us away forcing me with my mother to become casual labelers in peoples Gardens to get a living The 2 pig seeds we received are now part of our family it will change our lives wait in short time I’m sure it will make me achieve my dream of going to school” -----Thank you for your support God Bless this project.
