ZAMFAM Guardian Promotes Behavioral Change
Endson Kapika is a subsistent Farmer who lives in Shimbanga ward in Masaiti District.
He would sell farm produce and use most of the proceeds to buy alcohol. His abuse of alcohol would lead to violent episodes; physically abusing his wife whenever she would bring up the subject of his drinking and how it was affecting their family. His continued misuse of the farm proceeds caused his family to be financially handicapped
One day Endson was invited to a Para-social workshop by a Workforce member in his community. During the course of the workshop, Endson was deeply moved by the things he learned and realized that his abusive lifestyle was affecting his family. Endson vowed to change his ways and be a better husband and father.
To this day, Endson no longer takes alcohol, doesn’t have violent episodes and now manages his finances well
He attributes his behavioral change to the Para-social workshop and the support he received from workforce members. He, a guardian of OVCs on the ZAMFAM project, is now a Workforce Member
