Here is more about the project:
In June 2013, 35 widows in Shanto, Ethiopia received livestock that deeply impacted their lives. It's hard to imagine that impact when you can drive daily to the grocery store and purchase milk, cheese, and have the funds to purchase food in general for your family. For widows in rural Ethiopia life is not that convenient. This project, Phase II of AnimalHusbandry, will impact 20 widows by providing them with a cow and a sheep. The cows will provide daily milk and cheese for the family. The widows will also be able to sell milk, cheese, and the animals will be breed and offspring sold to provide income. For widows in Shanto the ability to purchase these animals on their own is extremely difficult. James 1:27 says to care for widows in their distress. This project is a simple way to provide that care. Donate today!
Animal Husbandry Phase II - $13,750 (UPDATE: Yippee, 20 widows will be so blessed, now onto Educational Support, see below!!)
Once enough funds are raised for the animal husbandry Phase II, we will continue to raise additional funds for a 2015 Education Support Fund to help the 150 sponsored children in Shanto have all the things they need for school.
2015 Education Support Fund - $6,250
GRAND TOTAL: $20,000 to help CHANGE THEIR STORY!
