Sustainable community plans empower children

Pick your cow parts!
Pick your cow parts!

GVI Ecuador project manager Tracey has come up with a great fundraising initiative for our sustainable community schemes.

Donations are used to purchase cows and guinea pig enclosures. The aim is to empower children by giving them an income stream to make sure that they are not excluded from education due to lack of funds. At the same time they learn a trade such as cheese and yogurt production or raising and selling Guinea Pigs.

The cows and guinea pig enclosures are expensive so to make this option available to more donors Tracey and her team have made artwork to value the different aspects of the cow and the value of a guinea pig and reached out to donors. By breaking a larger goal down it becomes more accessible and many of your have responded to this campaign with generous donations.

These plans are already working very well on the ground and we are very happy with the progress. News to follow soon.
