Projects to choose from:

As higher education in Kenya & Uganda is done at boarding schools, many families are unable to send their children. Female breeding goats allows a family to build a herd to sell for schooling. Purchase a female goat for $70

Freedom for Girls: FFG provides sanitary towels, panties & a health education pamphlet to venerable schoolgirls. The need for the project came after the realization that many girls miss 4-5 days or school every month during menstruation, causing many girls to miss tests, lose their place in school. This option allows them to stay in class and pass on to the next grade. Each kit provide 18 months of hygiene for $20.
