As a survivor of gender-based violence, Lilian Ocholla has overcome many challenges and has launched a successful and thriving poultry business in her community, through Hatching Hope in Kenya.
“This time I told myself that I have to do it. This is why I started poultry farming,” Lilian says.
This is her story. https://go.one.org/3x9m1kz

Thank you 🙏 to everyone who has shared their experiences of living through the COVID-19 pandemic. 😷
Your responses to our previous surveys 📋 allowed us to act on the things that concerned you the most.
We campaigned to make sure all people with a learning disability were prioritised for the vaccine 💉, challenged cuts to social care support ✂, and promoted equal access to healthcare. 👨‍⚕️
As we are starting to come out of lockdown, we have developed this survey 📋 to find out from family members and carers 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 of people with a learning disability about their family’s experiences during the last few months of the pandemic.
As society and the economy begin to reopen, it also asks about what support is needed as we come out of lockdown. ❓
Help us continue to campaign with and for people with a learning disability. 💪
