What do you plan to do with the cash transfer?
Receiving this money means my children will continue with their studies comfortably. I have four children, two in secondary school while.two are in grade six and seven. Due to lack of a stable income, I have school fees amounting to $900 and they are often sent home to collect the money. Since I do not have any assets that I can sell nor savings, they end up staying home hence missing on their studies. This affects their performance sometimes and am not happy about it. I plan on using the transfers to clear the balance and purchase school uniforms and books. The remaining will go into purchasing five goats to start up livestock keeping for future income generation. I am thankful to Give directly because my children will get food ,school fees and uniforms like other children.
What is the happiest part of your day?
My children bring me happiness,seeing them progress well in their studies gives me peace. I pray that they keep having good health as well as excelling in their examinations.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Providing basic needs for my family of six is the biggest challenge due to financial constraints. I do casual jobs to earn a living,due to its seasonal nature we are sometimes forced to forego one meal in a day. It is strenuous and I am not happy when my children do not get all their basic needs.
