The fifth video of this series features a photo of four-year-old Hadiara and one of her family’s goats. Operation Blessing gave her dad 3 goats to provide their with milk and start a small business breeding and selling goats. This extra money along with the money he makes building souvenirs allows him to send his children to school. Hadiara’s older brothers and sister are already in school and she will be starting when she is old enough.
The fourth video of this series features a story of Saley, a woman I met in Niger while capturing stories about Operation Blessing food security projects. See why Saley is able to stand proud in a field of fresh vegetables when the country has been facing a drought.
