Many widows and children are experiencing hardship. The widows find it difficult to support their children's education and to meet their basic needs for clothing, healthcare, and food. Providing animals will provide empowerment to them and their children.
There is an alarming rate of desert encroachment, a result of pressure on the land due to an increasing population rate, high rate of tree felling for farmland, fuel and charcoal production, overgrazing of the fields through nomadic activities, and indiscriminate bush burning. Averting this negative trend by embarking on programs that will end the problem is needed.
