“Before I met you, I was very hungry. I did not have any food to eat and would have to walk to school hungry and be hungry all day. I could not focus on my school which I love so much. I would come home hungry and not have anything to eat in the night and do it all over again the next morning. But, I give thanks to God for sending The Dirt Road Project. I am no longer hungry. I can sleep at night, and now can study. Before you, there was darkness, now my family is in the light.”
