Goats transformed Evas' life

Evas  Kyomukama and her family  were supported with 4 goats in July 2012 after being identified by our Community Based Trainer that Evas was living a miserable life with a family of five children after the death of her beloved husband who passed away in 2010 of HIV/AIDS.

She is a widow and was living a miserable life with a small portion of land, and her children were not going to school, due to lack of scholastic materials, food and more to that she is on ARVS with her two small children.

Currently she said,” I praise the almighty God that I was lucky among the many people.  Thanks goes to RACOBAO and their fund raisers from Global giving who always extend support to we poor ladies who did not believe that one time we would be happy. Life had become difficult to me due to lack of food and i had lost energy due to over working. I would offer labour in peoples gardens and get food for my family to eat which was done on a daily basis, and at the end of the day I would even fail to take my ARVS because  we were taking a single meal per day which continued to weaken my life to work for my family but now my goats have manipulated and am able to sell some of them to buy some of the household necessities  that can sustain the home,  I have been able to buy scholastic materials for my children and they are now in school, we are now able to get some food and as well as taking  my  tablets in time with the children because we have some food  to eat.” Thanks to RACOBAO and GlobalGiving too.

Really people do appreciate the work global giving is doing for them.
