On behalf of the orphans in Fundong Village, thank you so much for your support once again!
BERUDA will continue to proudly announce that you played a vital role in making our organization’s history by helping us secure a permanent place on the Global Giving fundraising portal!
This past summer was a busy one - since our last report, we purchased the remaining 31 goats for the orphans, as well as supplies for the primary-level children.
On September 4th, BERUDA invited the 20 primary-school children and their guardians to our office in Fundong to distribute the new school supplies, like uniforms, books and school bags. Our project coordinators have also been busy registering children and paying first-year school fees at various schools in the rural villages in Fundong area.
The children were overjoyed with the support received. Thank you to all who have given them hope for the future.
BERUDA’s field staff will continue promptly implementing the following actions:
Follow-up health of the 75 goats (50 females and 25 males) - Ongoing
Induct teachers to project details, reporting requirements and provide field worker contact for regular updates - September / October 2012
We delivered advice to the orphans and their guardians during field visit - Ongoing
Data collection—record schools, class level, teacher contact information on the output of the 25 orphans - Monthly
Hold one meeting with Orphans and one with the Orphans alongside with one to one counselling - November 2012

The BERUDA team continues to appreciate your dedicated support and we, on behalf of the 25 children and their caregivers who have received the gift of a rich and full education, continue saying thanks to you.
Report Update: First Goat PurchaseReporting Period: 26/06/2012Submitted on: 27/06/2012
On June 26, 2012, BERUDA Director Ngwainmbi Simon, and In-House Fundraiser Chiambah Enock, travelled from the Belo Headquarters to the Fundong Branch Office to purchase and distribute goats to the orphans participating in our Orphan Education Through Goats project. Also in attendance were two Canadian volunteers working with BERUDA temporarily.
In Fundong, they were met by Branch Manager Tim Fidelia and Project Coordinator Chia Mary. The goal was to purchase as many of the 75 goats as possible during Cattle Market Day. BERUDA contacted each orphan's guardian and invited them to pick up their new goats at the Branch Office and begin the administrative process.
We were able to purchase 44 of the 75 goats - 29 females and 15 males. Each orphan is to receive two females and one male goat to begin breeding as soon as possible. The orphans in attendance all received at least one goat, although most received two or three.
BERUDA's staff documented the number and sex of goats given to each child, and opened a bank account in Fundong to deposit the remaining funds, to be used to purchase the remaining goats, pay first-year school fees, and buy uniforms and books. The children will soon be measured for school uniforms (and shoes, if necessary), in preparation for the September start to the 2012-2013 school year.
The remaining 31 goats will be purchased next Wednesday, July 4, 2012.
On behalf of the 25 orphans and the entire team at BERUDA, thank you once again for your generosity and support of this project!

BERUDA is proud to announce that you played a vital role in making our organization’s history by helping us secure a permanent place on the Global Giving fundraising portal!
With your help, our Orphan Education Through Goats project raised $4,340 through 66 donations between April 1 and April 30, 2012. Plus, three additional gifts in the month of May brought our grand total to $4,475!
This good news means that, not only can we purchase the 60 goats necessary to send our 20 primary-level orphans to school, but we will also be able to buy goats for an additional five secondary school orphans identified in Fundong by BERUDA’s branch office!
The BERUDA team greatly appreciates your dedicated support of our orphans through the GlobalGiving Challenge, and we thank you on behalf of the 25 children who will receive a rich and full education, thanks to you.
On May 19, BERUDA invited all the orphans and their guardians to our office in Fundong to announce the good news and begin the administrative process to send them to school.
