GOATITAS FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL STUDENTS

Fundraising-ideas

Which Goaty gift will you give?

Every day Janaki cares for her family’s goats by giving them fresh food and water. Goats can provide a constant supply of income and nutritious food for a family through their quality milk, cheese and meat.

Primary school students can take part in Goatitas and raise funds for Project Compassion.

Fundraising-ideas

Download the Goatitas poster and colour in your goats each time you raise $50 for Project Compassion.

$50 can support young people like Janaki to learn how to provide food, water or a home for their goats, or even to buy more goats.
