Justine pays fees for her Children

Justine is a female widow . Her husband died in 2010 of HIV/AIDS. She received support from RACOBAO in 2013 through Global giving in empowering women with goats. In July 2012, She received two goats and she was among the families that received goats under Global Giving.

Justine was so happy and said  "my children are going back to school  for the first time having paid their schoolfees before the opening of the term".

What she has achieved?

She previously sold 2 goats to get money to pay her children’s school fees, meet her medical bills, food and she has also invested some money in a small business of selling eggplants and tomatoes. Justine is so pleased with the work Global Giving fundraisers are doing much in empowering the affected households with HIV/AIDS. thanks to Globalgiving for enhancing RACOBAO's capacity to reach such people.
