The goats project made Martha happy

Martha aged 96 years lives with two orphans: Julius (13years) and John (12yrs) who lost both parents to HIV/AIDS in 2008. Martha much as is in her late nineties and her grandsons is happy of their fat and rapid multiplying goats which have helped them to meet most of their basic needs by selling off springs.

 “I received two goats in 2011 from RACOBAO which were under gestation and immediately after 3 months they produced 3 offspring’s. I sold two off springs and I was able pay school fees, buy scholastic materials, clothes, paraffin and soap for my grandsons. But before this support of goats RACOBAO had constructed a house, Kitchen, pit latrine and a water tank and given me  other sufficient kits like beds, blankets but still we lacked income to sustain our family fortunately  after getting these goats, I can now live a happy life because I can see my grand children going to school now in uniforms  with books and pencils” Martha said.

Thanks to GlobalGiving for enabling RACOBAO to make such families self-sustaining.
