"The biggest difference in my daily life is being in a more spacious house with enough space to even pass without nocking on someone who is sitting down or a guest. Initially I used to live in a very small house and I could not even take up the responsibilities of church fellowship activities because their was no space to accommodate the church members but today, am also so glad to invite my fellow church members and/or any other guests to my house because I know that there is always enough space to accommodate them.

"The biggest difference in my daily life is having a better, more spacious and very presentable house. I used to live in a small house which was made of only four iron-sheets. This was challenging and my children had to go sleep in my brother's house which is in a different compound and I was always so concerned over their security when they moved their at night but today, I sleep with them in house. I am therefore more peaceful because my children no longer have to move at night going to sleep. Thanks to GD."

"The biggest difference in my daily life is that my son is today in a better house after his house collapse. Since he has a family, he could stay at home and he had to rent a house at the centre and he was working so hard to enable him construct another house. After helping him build a house, today, he stays with his family at home and they give me company and I can say that am more happy with them at home than when they stayed away from home. This is my pride."

"Having a spacious house to spend time with my children freely is the biggest gift that GiveDirectly has given unto me and I am happy living in a iron roofed house as opposed before the transfer was sent when I was staying in a leaky grassed thatched which gave us sleepless nights majorly when it rained as we had to move the bedding from one corner to another to avoid them being soaked up."
