Supported by a legacy – Promise and Prime Ndisasirwa

“We used to take the girls regularly to the health clinic because of illness, but now look at them,” she adds – pointing to her energetic daughters Promise and Prime as they play nearby.

Gastone and Scovia were amongst dozens of households from Kikyenkye village in South-Western Uganda who were trained in household food production. They have learned how to optimise what they grow on their small plot, and also received seed to allow them to start growing different fruit and vegetable crops.

Not only is the family healthier, but Gastone says he has begun to look at his land in a different way.

“Before, I used to think that this plot was too small to support a family. Now, I am optimistic about the future, especially for my children. I am going to continue working hard. I think we have a very bright future.”

Niamh from Carlow was one of many to leave a legacy gift which transformed the lives of the Ndisasirwa family and many others like them.

Legacies can take a number of different forms – read below to find out about different types of legacies or for advice on writing or changing your will.
