Angie is 52 years old and is a housewife with 7 children. She was living a very unhappy life without hope until our partner stepped in to help her family through this livestock program. The family’s life was difficult and their income was limited. They had a little access to food and the children were not able to attend school, until they were given a chance ..
Angie’s family was given just one piglet. It grew and reproduced as the family was given instruction to care for their pigs. The multiplier effect of pigs is great and Angie believes she will be able to give one to another household very soon so the project will continue to expand. This is an important part of our program and we’re so proud of Angie’s family for meeting the requirements. They also plan to sell some pigs so they will have money for food and other necessities. Angie is thankful to the American Foundation for Children with AIDS for this opportunity and hopes for continued contact and encouragement.
Please know that your generosity is truly making a difference in Angie’s life, and many others in our program. With our partners on the ground, the children and their families receive the support and monitoring they need to make this a very successful project. We are changing lives day after day. Angie and her children feel your love, and so do we at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS.

It's always exciting to open an email with an update from one of our partners. Even better when it includes a photograph like this that includes two new baby goats!
Let me introduce you to Jill and her family. There are ten people in Jill's home. Jill tells us that the beginning of her life was not easy, the situation was difficult with a limited income and little access to food. This project greatly changed her life when our partner chose to support her family in this project. She was given three goats, and they have reproduced. Jill and her family was taught how to grow their own food, yielding a big harvest from a potato garden. They were able to consume some and sell the rest.
Jill and her family look forward to gifting the next household because the entire community needs to be transformed. They greatly appreciate the American Foundation for Children with AIDS for all that it has done to change their situation, now they can stand independently on their own.
