a Girl & her goat

This is a blog about a Girl & her goat.

Or a Girl & her family, a Girl & her veggie patch, a Girl back at school.

As we drive up to Adi’s home in the village, we see families lying on mats under trees. It’s Sunday afternoon and they have been to church and are now taking a few hours off to rest and enjoy time with their loves ones. They smile and pull up another mat for us to sit on and we chat about how they’ve been doing.

We went through this very same process a year ago when we came, though last visit we talked about how times had been hard and Adi wasn’t in school. The family of 6 was sleeping in one room in a drafty house that looked as though it may fall down around them.

Adi is like many of the girls whose lives are gradually improving since we have been working alongside them. She works with her mum in their cassava patch and will soon sell their coriander and veggies to a local hotel. The same hotel that will buy eggs from another of our mums and provide vocational training for some of our school leavers. We love working in partnership!

Adi’s goat ‘mows’ the grass and will one day provide meat that sells very well in town. Her family’s modest house is being made more secure with tin sheets to board up the walls and most importantly, she and her sister are in school.
