To our friends at AFCA, I wanted to share with you yet another impact story about our project impacting the lives of AIDs affected families. As you know, the locust invasion in our area was terrible. THANK YOU a million times for helping save our garden with nets. We keep on harvesting and selling our vegetables more than ever. Now we harvest and sell almost every day at our local market!
Meet Lydia, a mother of three children. She is one of the women working in the garden project since February of last year. After her work in the garden, she goes to the market with the vegetables in the afternoon to sell in our new stall. She is able to take care of herself and her kids. As I was interviewing her yesterday, she is able to provide three meals (breakfast, lunch and supper) to her family. She is now saving to purchase a mattress for herself as she did save and was able to buy her mattresses for her kids just last month. Lydia said that since she became one of our direct beneficiaries, her kids have not been sent away from school because of fees, and not a day has passed without having food in her house!! Talk about a great impact!!! She is able to put on good clean cloths and she is proud to have dignity in her community just like other women.
