Josephine is a member of the Usegyo was Kikongoni cluster. She is a 39 year old married woman with 9 children. Her husband is unemployed but he looks after their livestock and does a bit of farming. Josephine joined Path From Poverty in 2017. She generates income by making ropes and doing casual work in the neighborhood. She also has a few chickens and sells eggs.
After receiving the tank she no longer has to walk 6 kilometers in each direction daily for water.
Josephine says that she could not imagine that they could have such a wonderful gift at their home, and her family see is as a miracle from God.
Josephine has been ill since last July. With her new water tank she no longer has to spend 100 shillings every day to buy water off her meager earnings. She was able to hold on to a few chickens.
What she'd like to share with us is that she is very grateful for this organization helping her get a big water tank.
Your Time, Talent and Treasure.
Path From Poverty is blessed to have so many who believe in and support our cause. Your gifts make the difference. We could not transform lives in the impactful and deeply meaningful way that we do without the support of all who understand, believe in, and support our mission. All donations are welcome and can be provided by sending in a check or via online here.
Also, there are many way to get involved. Consider joining us as a volunteer!
With love and gratitude,
The PFP staff and board
