With the beginning of rabbit farming last May, the Makutano group has had a lot from it:
Zainabu “I would like to be a news anchor after I complete school, but I was not sure if my dream will be realized.” Zainabu lives with her grandmother, where they have to collect stones, sell to earn a living.
She is very bright; she has always been in the top 5% of her class. Currently she is in form three. “I am always on the road; I can’t concentrate in class since my grandmother struggles to pay my fees. I have huge arrears that I have to be send home always. But thanks to the women group that my grandmother joined in 2011, they have pledged to support my education this will help me achieve my dream and be able to help my other siblings and the community at large.”
It is the small things that we do that makes a bigger difference in other peoples’ lives like supporting the 50 solar lanterns and 2 economic ventures for makutano. We wish to thank you all that have contributed to this cause. And pray that we will be able to raise the remaining funds together to achieve our main goal of at least providing 50 MwangaBora solar lamps to this group and be able to initiate another economic venture that will liberate them from suffering. Together we can fight hunger, poverty and suffering.
