"In October the Kings Kikima Grannies[new name] were graced with a visit from Ruth Kyatha who is our liason person in the village of Kikima Kenya.
She brought news of the progress our 28 gogos and 60 grandchildren have made. She was a guest at the Rotary Club in Wolfville and when asked what could be done to help, she suggested that goats would be a great gift. So it was decided that the Rotary club would send her 750.00 Cdn for 25 goats plus the $100 that a high school student had donated from her babysitting money to buy three more goats for a total of 28.
We decided that the goats would be a Christmas gift and Ruth was able to arrange for them to be delivered on the day of the monthly food distribution. Also each Gogo was asked to donate the first baby goat born to a less fortunate Gogo and so on. The original gift of goats will truly be ’the gift that keeps on giving’. As you will see from the pictures, it was a very thrilling day...for the Gogos and also for us. Hope you are both well. Happy New Year.
