GLOBAL GIVING REPORT
Updates on the progress of new family micro-enterprises
In August this year, we conducted follow-ups via phone and visits to all the guardians of the reunified children under our family-based care programme to know the progress of the microenterprises that we established for them during the Covid 19 pandemic period.
The microenterprise businesses are doing well since there are more successes stories compared to the previous report. Below are some success stories.

Success stories on livestock
One family that we supported with a dairy cow is now benefiting from milk after the cow gave birth to a calf. The family is using the milk for home consumption and sale. The name of the cow is called Ngari which means Love in the Masaai language. The family got love when this cow was brought.
