Before joining the care group, all wasn’t well with me, especially when members of my family get hit by diseases like diarrhoea, malaria and malnutrition. . All i thought was that I was being bewitched by surrounding people. Little did I know that ignorance was the major cause of miseries on my family members. After joining the care group i started to see things another Way round. I really realised that some of the things were causing misery in our family was not true at all. Being a member of the care group gave answers to the problems which surrounded me.
Through care group I have learnt so many key messages that can transformed my life which I adhere to. Messages like diet diversity, hygiene and sanitation nutrition integration become of importance and sensible other than frequent illness that my family was experiencing. In fact am a living testimony for I have also learnt how to process and prepare balanced diet suitable for pregnant women and young children under five years.
The knowledge and skills I have acquired from care group has not only reduced occurrence of diseases among family members but also enriched the family with keys to healthy and abundant life .Now I have become a male motivator to encourage fellow men to join care groups where there membership is in minority. More applauds be given to SANI project for opening me that ignorance can surely bewitch the family.
Even if the project staff leaves but we are there intact encouraging and sharing the skills and knowledge acquired from the project men especially so that they can change their mind set of saying care group meetings are issues of women only.
