You have made a lot of difference in the lives of our families and our individual lives

Dear friends and supporters

We are delighted to share with you a video from Olivette, a very grateful beneficiary. Olivette went through the business training course and received a microfinance loan that you helped provide.  In this video she says a big thank you to YOU

She tells us that through the support we have provided, we have done a lot in the lives of her family members.  On behalf of a group of beneficiaries, she states that support provided has made a lot of difference in the lives of the families of the beneficiaries and their individual lives.

Watch the video

Olivette explains that she has been blessed tremendously.  She has 4 kids and wasn’t working.  Things were really bad and she was in school.  Through the support we provided in the form of scholarships and microfinance loans, she has been able to run a small business and buy the needed things for her kids and raise her family.

She says through the video: “I only want to say thank you to them and to let them know that whatever they’re giving it’s not going in vain, we appreciate it, and we are blessed.  The lives of our children have been transformed. It has made a lot of difference.”  Wow!  What a testimony of the impact that YOU have made.  You make this happen.

It's heart-warming to hear of the transforming impact of YOUR donations.  It is great to know that what we are doing is fruitful and strengthening lives.

She concludes by saying: “thanks to all the people who made it possible for us to lift up our heads and walk proudly.  May God bless you. May God bless all of you that are doing these things for us."
