Her name is Nikki and she’s a 40 year old widow raising three biological children and four adopted children. By 19 years old, she’d had her three children and by 20, she was a widow! Matthew, Michael, Tashi, and Dezi came into her family when her brother and sister in law died, leaving the children in her care. With seven children to raise, Nikki was overjoyed to have been selected as an AFCA family. In 2016, the family received seeds, four sheep, a solar light, a water filter, and training. When we visited this past week to do a check up on the animals and the children, the sheep were walking around, eating and looking healthy. A couple of them are clearly pregnant, which is only going to help the family do better, allowing them to sell some for much-needed funds and food. Nikki is so grateful for AFCA, because she knows that the children are able to get an education thanks to the sale of extra vegetables, corn, peanuts, and beans from the garden.
