Message for the parents Mother Aïda school because of the corona virus

As Mother Aida Foundation and Mother Aida School, we join the world in fighting Corona Virus Pandemic.
In line with the Presidential directive and Ministry of Health Guidelines, the school has been closed for 1month, Public transportation closed for 14 days.
It is a tough time because we can not give more goats to new parents, The closure of  markets is making it difficult for parents to do business yet most of them  get their income for supporting their families, children’s growth and education from such  business incomes.
*PARENTS:*
1) Follow Guidelines issued by Ministry of Health.
2) Tell Children to wash their hands all the time.
3) Teach them to maintain social distance.
4) And above all strictly keep them at home.
*TOGETHER WE DEFEAT COVID-19*

The first cows arrived

Goat, cow and chicken

Follow up goats

We visit 6 mothers who get a goat some years ago. They take care and some of them already has 5 goats or more. The resulta are …more money for schoolfees and women who have there own goats. More independance .
