Orphans of Teso Goats for Kids
Change their Story
Join us as we celebrate Christmas a little differently this year. In place of the hustle and bustle of gift buying and gift getting, we are working to celebrate the advent season by giving the gift of hope and change to the children at the Bukedea and Ogoloi CarePoints in Uganda.
Change a Life - Give a Goat
Last year, we raised over $32,000 to help construct facilities at our two CarePoints. This year, our goal is to purchase a goat for each of the 364 orphaned children in Bukedea and Ogoloi. In their world this is equivelent to a savings account, and a game changer for each of their futures.
Each goat costs $50 (purchase and delivery), and our goal is to purchase one female goat for each and every child. The goats would be able to reproduce within 3-6 months. Goats are able to have up to three "kids" per year so they can increase their flock of goats quickly. As they continue to raise their goats and increase their flock our kids will have the option to sell goats to meet financial needs that arise. This is a "Succeed" step in Children's HopeChest's "Survive, Thrive, and Succeed" model, and is aimed at providing long term sustainable improvement in their live's and future's. Please consider donating today to help us raise enough funds to purchase a goat for each child and give them the dignity to provide for themselves!
You can make a donation for one goat, or many, or any other amount. Every dollar helps. We sincerely appreciate your support and your donation is tax deductable.
Any extra money we raise will be used to help send the children to school and start the new carepoint!! Every dollar donated makes a huge impact in these children's lives and thier entire community! To learn more about the Orphans of Teso's work please visit our website www.orphansofteso.com
