|This is Buke with her Sauti Moja donkey. |
"This is not a donkey, it is my back."
No, I am not talking about re-gifting but about giving a valuable asset that multiplies and helps many others.
After a single mother or widow receives her female donkey, the first female off-spring will be ‘passed on’ to another poor single mother who, in turn, will pass on to the next.
In our CLBs, the good fortune of a single mother receiving livestock strengthens the whole community, because the benefit spreads throughout.
Buke's debt has been cleared as she passes|
on her donkey's first female offspring to the
next poor widow.
What is this – social change or social justice - when the poor are no longer invisible or when a beneficiary says, “This is not a donkey; it is called my back.”?
