Margaret’s Story – Kenya
MARGARET is a guardian of six young children in a small rural village outside of Meru, Kenya who has struggled for years to provide food and basics. When she received a water tank, made possible by a Pangea Giving grant to CIFORD Kenya, things started improve. Margaret is using rainwater collected in the tank to irrigate her gardens more efficiently. This, in turn, has resulted in much larger food yields for her and the children. She is also selling surplus vegetables from her garden to neighbors which helps her meet other basic needs for the children.
CIFORD Kenya works for comprehensive empowerment of rural poor in semi arid areas of NE Kenya.
