On Monday, December 9th, we were overwhelmed to be the recipients of a $1,000 donation check toward our Kindergarten IB project ~ Quarters for Quarts from the parishioners of Northminster Presbyterian Church.  We are grateful they chose to embrace and share our goal of helping provide community sustainability and classroom support by purchasing pregnant heifers for children in Umoja.

Not only will the Kenyan Kindergarten children learn to respect and value the cows, but they will share in the responsibility of caring for the animals.  The cows’ milk will be sold to source funds needed to improve Kindergarten classroom conditions and purchase much-needed school supplies.

The Westminster donation alone purchases the second cow our John Strange family was working toward.  We are proud to say we can now keep collecting donations toward cow #3 and assisting a third group of Kindergarteners.

We extend heartfelt appreciation to Northminster Presbyterian folks who understand that in working together as a community, we can achieve great things in the world.
