From Hopeless to HopeFULL
Beatrice, 11, and her family benefit from agriculture, one of the primary projects in Moyo Area Programme in Zambia. In 2014, her stepfather, Patrick Nzala, was one of the first beneficiaries of goats with World Vision’s Animal Give-back program. The goats were an immediate benefit because the family could sell them for food when they multiplied.
