My name is Prescott Haber and I am from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I am 12 years old. My dad is starting an English Immersion School in Haiti. In Haiti, many children live in extreme poverty. Kids my age are asked to help make money for the family instead of going to school.
If I can raise $600, I can buy 12 goats. With 12 goats, Junior ( his name, is in the 5th grade and wants to be a Doctor) should be able to have 20 baby goats(kids) in a year. Baby goats(kids) don't sell for as much as abult goats a baby goat will sell for about $35US Dollars. The $700 (20baby goats x $35US) should be enough to provide for his school work and what Junior would make for his family if he had to quit school and get a job.
Help me buy goats and help me give Junior (his name) an education. An education for Junior (his real name) means a chance at a brighter future.
Thank you for caring and for helping me to help Junior (Not kidding his name is Junior).
This is how I started. Junior has his goats and when we went to deliver the goats his village didn't have any food.
Now I want to do this samething for every family in his village with kids, about 50 families. Six hundred dollars for twelve goats for fifty families would take thirty thousand dollars.
My dad says that if I could do this I would make the family unity sustainable, whatever that means.
