OPEN THE DOOR For Opportunity
Educate and Empower Girls with Your Gift
K.C. is 8 years old. She lives in a small village on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. And she is one of the countless girls around the world who will be going to school this year as a direct result of the income her family began earning after joining a Heifer project.
The gift of a heifer from generous donors like you will not only transform K.C. and U.J.’s futures, but also the family who receives a calf through Passing on the Gift®.
Her mother, Lanie, and father, Ulyssis, earned barely enough household income to survive. After a neighbor found a newborn baby boy in a ditch on the side of the road, Lanie and Ulyssis knew they had to give this little boy, whom they called U.J., a home. But they were worried about providing for his needs when they were already struggling to meet K.C.’s.
For K.C.’s family, generous donors like you helped provide a heifer and training in its care. And that act of selflessness and caring is the reason why K.C. is in school today where she will get the chance every child deserves — an opportunity to achieve her full potential.
The situation is heartbreaking — little girls all over the world aren’t getting the education they deserve because of poverty and discrimination. The projects your gifts support are an especially effective way to break that cycle. They bring positive change in so many forms: better food, better health, better shelter, cleaner water and better education.
Seeing a village of children, especially girls, heading off to school is such a wonderful sight... and a striking indication that your support is working. So please make your next gift today and help more families like K.C.’s send their girls to school.
