"My life has changed because I lacked a lot before GD came into my life. My child who was meant to do a final year missed school for a whole year because i dint have school fees but now he is in school without worry of being chased away. I did not have chairs of my own but now i am not worried, even if the one i was given is taken away. I used to cook in my house and sleep with my chicken buy now i have a kitchen that has space for other personal use."
