A full glass of milk

A full glass of milk
NATH FRANCIS, PIRGANJ PROGRAMME MANAGER BANGLADESH

Sahanara and Zaharul were struggling to meet their family's needs. Zaharul works in the field but there was not enough money. 

“I was very poor. I had no ability to feed my baby. We had passed through life with difficulty. I was totally upset thinking about the future of my life and about the life of my child,” shares Sahanara.   
 
Then, Sahanara heard from a neighbour about the work World Vision was doing in their community in helping families with a secondary income.  
 
Sahanara attended World Vision training sessions and she worked hard. She learned about cattle rearing, home gardening, and how to maintain the newly introduced eco-ovens. After completing her training, Sahanara and her family were given vegetable seeds and a cow.  
 
She now gets enough fresh vegetables from her household garden as is easily able to meet the family’s nutritional needs. The cow has given birth to a calf, and Sahanara can get about 1.75 litres of milk per day, meaning she has excess to sell at the local market.  

She says, “Before I was not able to give a glass of milk to my beloved daughter for drinking. But now every day I can give a full glass of milk to my daughter. Now I am very happy.”
