During this Holiday Challenge, we'll highlight the "Goats for Girls" and School Nutrition programs.
Goats for Girls:
Our Goats for Girls program in Ethiopia and Kenya is a highly effective way to support young girls’ education by providing a sustainable source of income for girls who are at risk of dropping out of school. With the income from goats, girls can pay their school fees, purchase school supplies, and avoid forced or arranged early marriage.
Four million children ages 5-10 in the Philippines are undernourished. Bio-intensive gardening (BIG) uses indigenous seeds, organic fertilizers, and intensive planting to grow a variety of vegetables and crops in a surprisingly small area, at schools. These gardens supplement school nutrition programs and provide much-needed nourishment to children and their families.
To learn more about our other programs, visit iirr.org.
Your gift of $60 could purchase two goats for a girl. And a gift of $3,500 could fund an entire school garden!
Please make a gift today!
