Justine's story

In one of the remote villages in Eastern Zambia, 12-year-old Justine loves to spend time with his grandmother Cecilia as they herd the family goats when he is not studying.

Before Cecilia received goats, World Vision trained her together with other families on how to care for the goats. “We were taught on how to keep the goats clean and how to make a goat pen off the ground so that they can be healthy and clean,” she says.

Within a space of two months, Cecilia’s goats started to multiply meaning it was time for her to pass on the goats to another family.

“From the lessons I got from World Vision, my goats started to multiply in numbers. I was very happy because I knew that it was the end of poverty for my family because from them I would earn an income by selling and providing for my children and grandchildren,” says Cecilia.

Justine has hope for his future. He plans to become a medical doctor, and will work hard at school so as to have a bright future.

World Vision has given us hope where we had little. World Vision came in and made it possible for us to have more.
