Enjoy The Dream

START WHERE YOU ARE
“I used to be a beggar, my wife left because I became blind and I was dragged around by my children begging until I got this vision 4 years ago. I knew I had to take up courage and use my walking stick to move. I cultivated cassava and started keeping rabbits and goats. From zero, I now have 12 cows and I have put up a permanent family house”

I am enjoying the dram!
I lead the Gobiri Liki Jazz Band, which performs at social events. I compose songs that teach about peace and love to end gender-based violence in this community. Now, I feel more organised. My children go to school, I have a new wife, I enjoy good meals and if there is anything to do in the family, they join me and we work together. ©Jjumba Martin / Oxfam

I used to be a beggar; my wife left because I became blind. I was dragged around by my children begging until I got a vision for my life 4 years ago. Though I was still blind; I started to take up courage and use my walking stick to move. I cultivated; cassava; and; started keeping rabbits and goats. From 2 cows; now; I have 12 cattle and I have put up a permanent family house.I am enjoying; what used to be a dream. I lead the Gobiri Liki Jazz Band which performs at social events. I compose songs that teach about peace and love; to end Gender Based Violence in my community. Now I feel very organized because my children are able to go to school. If there is anything to do in the family; they join me and we work together."
