Lives Have Totally Changed Thanks to You!

By Jonathan Steck | Senior Editor

Encise is succeeding in school because of you!
Encise is succeeding in school because of you!

I’ve got some wonderful news to share with you!

The goat project in Haiti you’ve help support is now fully funded! This means that 70 girls have received goats and are now able to stay in school and get an education. You’re such a blessing, so on behalf of each one, thank you!

Girls in Haiti are now living completely different, and much more hopeful lives thanks to your generosity.

Do you remember Manoucha? While there are still many challenges where she lives, Manoucha is still smiling gratefully for the new opportunity you’ve given her.

She dreamed of finishing school and becoming a nurse, but had faced so many health challenges that at times she felt absolutely discouraged about ever getting making it through, let alone escaping the poverty her family was in.  

So when World Concern used your gift to buy her a goat, it immediately gave Manoucha hope. And now thanks to you, she’s raising healthy goats (yes, goats!) and has a renewed spirit to achieve those dreams.

Fania is another young girl whose life you’ve transformed. She’ll be finishing the 6th grade soon, so that means the goat you were able to give her will now be full grown. It’s likely had kids and the extra income will be relieving the burden of poverty on her family.

“I know how to take care of the goat because I learned some things in the training.” Fania said proudly. Because of your gift, Fania was trained and now her goats are thriving!

Each year, a goat can give between six and nine kids so your gift has a multiplying effect for Manoucha and Fania–and their families. With a sustainable income, both girls can stay in school, get an education and have every chance to earn their way out of poverty.

And how could we forget Encise! Just like the other girls, Encise is well on the way to achieving her dreams–all thanks to you! She’ll be in high school soon and like Manoucha, wants to become a nurse.

I hope you know how valuable you are! In Haiti, a country that’s struggling in so many ways, your gifts of goats to girls bring hope, and are changing (and have totally changed) lives.
