Give a cow about Rwanda

****I am now heading out to Rwanda - thank you to everyone who supported this fundraiser!

This October I will have the privilege to participate in the Mars Ambassador Program in Rwanda, Africa. My group of 8 ambassadors will spend one week learning more about tea farming and the importance of sustainability, the life of a farmers and last but not least we will participate in a community giveback activity.

I am raising funds to support a 10 year old Rwandan Government program called Girinka; a program that provides financial assistance to poor families by providing them with a cow. The aim of this program is to cut poverty and improve health and nutrition in rural areas. The idea is simple: given a cow, a poor family suddenly has milk to drink and manure with which to fertilize crops.

My hope is to help raise enough money to support 5 Rwandan families, to do so I need to raise $2100 as the cost of one cow is $450-$510

Help make a difference for the life of a Rwandan family by supporting my fundraiser - every helping hand can definitely make a big impact.

Cut off date for this fundraiser is October 24th 2018.
