These families thanked the President of the Republic Paul Kagame who initiated girinka program to improve the social welfare and the health of Rwandans.
They also said that they are no longer going to be affected by eating poor eating habits as they will get milk and manure to boost their crops production.
“To me it is like a dream, I now have 54 years and apart from me, no single person in my family has ever owned a cow but now I have one” said Leonard Ruyigirana one of the 1994 genocide against Tutsi who was given a cow.
Yohana Mutungirehe a historically marginalized and who was given a cow said that he got a boost to fight poverty he has been leaving in for a very long time. He had been waiting patiently to also be given a cow like others in this program and asked those who are not yet given to wait patiently because they will get them.

Prudence Karamira the executive secretary in Bureau Social de development said that they give cows to the poor families but who are able to care and feed them.
Jean Marie Nahayo the executive secretary of Byimana sector warned families who are given cows and sell them and if any one does sell the cow, he/she will be punished accordingly instead asked them to take care of them so that if they multiply they give to their neighbours.
