Genevieve Umumarashavu lost her husband and two children during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. She received support from Trócaire in farming crops and livestock and learning to save and manage small loans. She now owns a shop and is putting her children through school.
Chakuwamba Thole is a farmer from Malawi where Trócaire has been working for a number of years. In 2006, his family received finance for two goats and training in new farming practices.
"I invested in looking after these two goats until they multiplied. My goats grew in number to 38 and I used the money from the goats to invest in cotton farming. From these two goats, I'm happy to say I’m now a very proud farmer. I’m able to send my children to school."
To acknowledge your generosity, all supporters of this campaign will receive our Trócaire Giving Badge to display on your website, stationery or in your workplace.
By partnering with Trócaire, you are joining the many other businesses that are giving back to communities in urgent need of help.
"Myself and Una believe we can and should help where we can. We trust Trócaire and the approach they take.
We know we are making a difference to the lives of ordinary people living in poverty and fear in Africa and beyond - mothers, fathers, children, grandparents.
While things in Ireland have changed in recent years, we still live in a relatively safe country where our basic human rights are respected and fulfilled. Others are not so fortunate.”
