Persons with disabilities in Dowa have heaped praise on a programme Development Aid from People to People (DAPP) Malawi is implementing in the district, saying it has changed them from sheer dependent individuals to independent.
With the programme, DAPP is giving out either pigs or goats to the disadvantaged for rearing so that they can financially benefit at a later time.
Esnart Kachimbwi, a beneficiary and a mother of five, who now has five goats from one last year called on DAPP Malawi to continue supporting people like her in the country.
“My life has completely changed for the better. I’m able to comfortably support my children with their school needs once I sell,” said the 67-year old woman who cannot walk properly.
And her son, Masautso, 14, in Standard Four admitted life changing in their home since her mother got the goats from DAPP.
Group village headman Isimu of the area not only thanked DAPP Malawi for their projects in the area but also said the organisation’s advisors were down-to-earth and very willing to work with and support their clientele.
According to Doreen Banda-Mphepo who works with persons with disability for DAPP projects in the area, the livestock programme has enabled the physically disadvantaged to be independent.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
