We have a team going to Uganda right after Thanksgiving and one of the things we are looking forward to is visiting a village and giving a pregnant goat to a widow, orphan, or a person with a handicap. These events are always a time of great celebration in the village. Everyone turns out even if they are not receiving a goat. There is great joy. Then we share a meal with the villagers and there are several speaches. Someone from our team will be asked to tell them why we come and give goats away. Local government officials will be there, and our partner Ugandan NGO will share their thoughts. These goat celebrations are always a high point of our trips. There are 10 on our team and 4 have never been to Uganda before so this will be a special time for them.
