My Gift Catalogue
When Manjula's family received the gift of cow through the My Gift Catalogue, their joy knew no bounds. "Our cow has given birth to a calf," says Manjula. The cow gives nine liters of milk every day and she sells the milk for extra income. She uses the profits to pay school fees and buy educational necessities for her children. "My children can now study as much as they want," adds Manjula.
