Meskerem is one of the very active members of our program. She is always happy and excited to be at the Emmanuel House parties. Her mother was one of the first people to receive a donkey as part of an IGA plan. The family has benefited a lot out of this and it has made life easier for Meskerem’s mother. She used to fetch water on her back to earn a living but now has 2 donkeys to carry water for her. She also rents the donkeys when she is not doing her own work to earn even more income.
