We are at day 4 of our Advent Calendar and we are making a donation to one of our favourite charities, Kid for Kids to help the forgotten children of Darfur.
This is taken from their website.
- Together, we adopt whole communities – 110 villages so far – and listen to what the Villagers say will help the most.
- Our GOAT loans provide protein-rich milk to malnourished children. The poorest families receive 5 Goats. After 2 years, once the little flock has grown, 5 Goats are then passed on to another family to benefit.
- DONKEYS carry heavy loads and CHICKENS provide eggs for the elderly.
- HANDPUMPS provide clean water in our villages.
- TREES and sustainable forests slow the spread of the desert.
- MIDWIVES and FIRST AID WORKERS to save lives.
- KINDERGARTENS give children an education and a future out of poverty.
- We give FARM TOOLS, MOSQUITO NETS, BLANKETS, JERRY CANS, KITCHEN UTENSILS, SEEDS and much more.
- But most importantly, we TRAIN the villagers in how to manage these sustainable projects so they are successful.
- Our projects prove sustainability works when we listen and help empower whole communities to lift themselves out of abject poverty.
