Let’s take a moment to talk about hunger. I know, it’s probably far from your mind right now. In fact, being stuffed and needing some exercise is probably more like it, as we near the end of another holiday season. However, it’s an important topic, and now might just be the exact right time to think about it, as it’s surely top of mind for the approximately 795 million hungry people around the world. 795 million. And on top of that, poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five, that’s 3.1 million children each year. Can you even imagine losing a child to hunger?

Apaikunda is a mother of seven in the village of Ngyeku in Tanzania. Her husband passed away, leaving her to care for her young children on her own. She works as a weeder for other people since she does not own any land. In addition to the challenges of being a single parent, Apaikunda is living with HIV. Our ECHO East Africa team collaborated with local partners and village leaders to select 100 low-income families to participate in an Irish dairy goat program. Before receiving a goat, ECHO trainings prepared participants to care for these imported goats, a breed that produces more milk than local goat breeds.
