Parima is like so many women in Uganda. She lives in a village called Konko and dreams of being able to one day clothe and feed her children well. She wants them to have an education but saw no way for them to go to school - UNTIL...
Parima was given a sponsor in God Is Grace Ministry. Through this sponsorship, Parima is able to receive funds to build businesses. Her dreams have become reality and Parima has begun developing the business of selling produce. She also wants to raise pigs and chickens.
Parima was married to her first husband and had four children with him. He then left her for another woman, leaving no support for the children. Parima married again a second man and they had three children together. He has abandoned her. The second husband comes around once in a while but never supports their children in any way. Parima, by herself, is raising 7 children at the age of 36! She plans on working hard to be able to care for these children and to educate them.
At Christmas time this year, someone thought "outside the box" and gave God Is Grace Ministry money for a pig instead of giving a gift to a friend or family member. This friend/family member received a beautiful card stating that "A Pig Has Been Given In Your Honor." TODAY, Parima was the recipient of that pig! She will use this pig to start her business in raising pigs - a great business in Uganda! We are so grateful to this donor who "thought beyond" in their Christmas giving!
NOW Parima has hope - she is thinking of her future and the possibilities for her children! A pig has opened up thoughts of a business which will be ongoing! How Parima's life has been turned around because of these blessings!
