The Future for Genny's Children and Orphans

Before being selected for the livestock project, Genny’s family was walking through a difficult time in their life.  Their lack of medical care and food was a serious problem.  Genny tells us she was only doing gardening small fields, which did not meet the needs of her family.  I asked myself what will the future of my children and the orphans I raise be?

Genny and her family received training in agriculture.  She did not understand the agricultural calendar and the ideal time to sow, or the cultivation techniques.  After the training, the family was equipped with improved seeds, food crops, vegetables and 4 sheep.

Putting these gifts into practice, Genny’s family produce quantitatively and qualitatively.  Field products are consumed by the family, and income is used for school fees, clothing and medical care.  They have returned the multiplication center’s share in sheep, and now sell them to earn money.

Genny adds that the future looks bright because of the education of her children. In addition, she has purchased a plot and started buying sheet metal to construct a home.  We are blessed beyond words by your generosity.

Everyone here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS, and our partners in Africa, thank you for your continued support of this important project.  If you would like to learn even more about this project and others, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@AFCAids.org.
