“I am Rénovat, a student in Grade 5 at Jene I primary school. When Food for the Hungry (FH) came into our community, I was in Grade 3.
"I was really amazed to see the way FH cared for children, especially by providing us with all the necessary school materials. Although I was from a vulnerable family, this encouraged me to compete with other students. At the end of the school year, I had achieved 84% and was proclaimed the first out of 63 students!
"As a reward, I was given a female goat. This reward has been for me a driving force to continue working hard at school because I am always the first in my class and I am given awards each school year end. Now the goat has already delivered a small baby goat. My family is benefiting from the manure produced by my goats and uses the manure to fertilize vegetables and other crops. I am very happy to see FH fighting for the good future of children and I thank God to have brought FH into our community.”
Rénovat is a 13-year-old sponsored child living in the rural community of Kigeri, Burundi. He has three sisters and his mother, Marie Rose, is part of a Cascade group.
