Bicycle for a Girl
In developing countries, many girls are forced to drop out of school because they live too far away or risk dangers such as violence or kidnapping on their walking route. Your gift of a bicycle will provide safe, speedy transportation for these eager young students. In developing countries there are far too many reasons that girls may not attend school. One of them is that they cannot get to the school because of the distance from their home. Your gift of a bicycle can give a young girl the oppurtunity to get an education and help break the cycle of poverty!
Goats are often a lifeline to entire communities offering milk, cheese, yogurt and even meat. They can also help increase the family income by providing offspring and extra dairy products for sale at the market.
A healthy dairy goat can give up to 16 cups of milk a day. Goat's milk is a very good source of calcium and the amino acid tryptophan. It is also a good source of protein, phosphorus, riboflavin (vitamin B2) and potassium.
