Give pregnant goat to widow or orphan in Uganda

Project Report | Jan 12, 2018
Here come the goats!

By Mike Hildenbrand | Project Leader

Because of your generous support we raised $911.70 to purchase pregnant goats that will be given to widows or orphans in rural Uganda.  This will be a life changer for them.  On January 24 a team of eight from Portland, Oregon will head to Uganda to work alongside the Ugandans on a number of projects.  One of those projects is to travel to a rural village and help to distribute the goats.  This is a major event in the life of the whole village.  Everyone dresses up and comes to celebrate, even the ones who will not be receiving a goat.  A local government official comes to join in the celebration.  Then the whole village has a meal together. I love to see the joy on their faces.

When our team returns in early February I will send a fuller report complete with pictures.

Without you this would not be possible.  I will tell the Ugandans about the amazing people from different parts of the world that came together to make this possible.

Thank You
