Rosemary’s big dream is bigger than most. She wants to be a chef! She wants to host! Nothing will stand in her way? (Or will it?)

Rosemary's Family when she was young.

You see her family used to be hungry,
Quite a bit.

Her family worked and they toiled. But there was never enough. Life was too hard. Life was too rough.

Houses & happy goats

But one day someone gave the family a gift.
Five goats from World Vision. And it gave them a lift!

The goats multiplied and so did their money. Life was looking up. Life was looking sunny.

They opened up shops and planted in fields.
They ate from their harvest and sold from their yields.

Now, all Rosemary is hungry for…is knowledge in class. And we think her big dream of becoming a chef will come to pass!
