Life Stories

“I am a widow. I was living in a house that would one day fall on my head. With the arrival of Riverkeeper, I started to have a glimmer of hope. I was given a business to work and live in peace. My concern was also to have a house. The Riverkeeper Foundation responded favourably by building a house for me out of planks. It was a dream for me, because I didn’t know that one day I would have a house where I could sleep away from all the bad weather.

Today I have just bought a rented field on which I will plant beans and maize. I can’t thank the Fondation Sentinelles enough for giving me the courage to fight for the well-being of my children. “
