Just Like My Child Foundation officially signed a covenant with community members for a sustainable water irrigation project, which aims to generate income within the community of Keur Cheikh in Senegal.
Lydia and her family received a dairy goat from Just Like My Child Foundation's Project Grace in August of 2012. Just three weeks later, the dairy nanny kidded female twins. This was the rise of the "goats' milk delicacy" for Lydia and her family.

One of the reasons why Project GRACE is so impressive is because of the support networks it creates between farmers living with HIV. Through these networks farmers share their practical knowledge with one another and support each other.
Project GRACE started in 2009 and provides small loans in the form of poultry and livestock to its participants who work together as well as encourage others to get tested for HIV at Bishop Asili, their local hospital.
