This Thanksgiving you’ll be thanking God for His many blessings in your life. But more than likely, a goat won’t be one of them. But maybe it should be.
For the orphans that Unite 4 Africa helps, a goat is one of the greatest blessings she or he could possibly hope and pray for. A goat can give an orphan with very little a head start toward a life of responsibility and self-provision. A goat can change an orphan’s life forever. And you could be the one who answers that orphan’s prayer.
Little Genet was one of those children. She lost her parents when she was only three years old and went to live with her grandmother. Three years ago, Unite 4 Africa gave her a goat to help provide for her and her grandmother. We trained her on how to care for the goat and grow her herd. Just 3 years later that goat has become 15 goats.
Recently, Genet sold some of her goats and bought a cow to produce milk. She even gave one of her goats to another orphan. In fact, all of the orphans are taught to give back to other orphans as their animal produces. You can imagine how Genet’s self-worth, confidence, and empowerment grew. And how just a goat made such a huge difference in her life.
Desperation is often a driving force for orphaned children. Many live one day to the next in the hope of merely surviving, making sacrifices and compromises in order to simply eat a meal or have a place to sleep for the night.
But Unite 4 Africa’s animals for orphans project empowers these children to learn to become self-supporting. In the process, they’re able to help their adoptive families and become responsible and loving men and women of God.
You can make a special Thanksgiving gift of a goat to an orphan for only $50 by visiting our special campaign page at https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/Unite4AfricaOrphans And then you will be thanking God for a goat this Thanksgiving because you’ll know that, with that goat, you changed a child’s life.
