Joan (pictured centre) is a sponsored child currently studying in grade six. Joan’s is among many families in Ndabibi who’ve developed a reliable income source with the help of generous sponsors like you.
Joan’s father Sammy started fish farming following training facilitated by the project. He also joined a local savings group.
Sammy and other group members contribute a small amount of money each month to a joint fund which they can access in the form of low cost loans to buy farm supplies or start or build on small business activities.
He took out a loan from the savings group to buy sheep to breed and he has been able to sell their offspring and use the profits to buy egg-laying hens and cover his children’s education costs.
“Up to now I sold the rest of the sheep and I bought a calf, which I presently rear and my family is doing well,” Sammy explained.
"We were living with some struggles, but when World Vision came and started training us in different matters we became somehow educated and our life became uplifted."
