See how this Heifer family turned hopelessness into opportunity.
Before Heifer came to their village, Stephen and Phoebe Onyango barely earned enough to feed their four children. They subsisted on small rations of milk, a few vegetables, and porridge (ugali). The youngest, Boniface, weighed barely half what a healthy child his age should. He and his siblings were severely malnourished. Their situation seemed truly hopeless.
Then something wonderful happened: the family received three goats from Heifer International, along with training in their care. Now, the goats provide enough milk for the whole family. Now, the family's income has multiplied by selling the extra milk the goats provide, allowing Stephen and Phoebe to send their children to school. Now, the Onyangos own six goats, a cow, a calf, and a dozen chickens. Now, they are entrepreneurs. Now, they are self-sufficient.
