"Receiving this money means my two children can study without the burden of having to be sent away from school for lack of fees. The elder one is in college while another in secondary school. Furthermore, my desire is to purchase a dairy cow which will sustain my family. I am quite conscious that Give Directly is here for a season and thus purchasing a cow will be my source of income to sustain us thereafter. Lastly, I intend to build a new house with the remaining amount. "
