Elizabeth Grove Primary have raised $2158.05 for the Cows for Cambodia Charity!
Cows for Cambodia
Cows for Cambodia is essentially a “COW BANK” the charity loans families a pregnant cow, they must look after it and when it has the baby they get to keep the baby and they take the cow back. It’s more about providing an opportunity to break the poverty cycle rather than a direct handout. Each family signs a contract to ensure our cow is looked after and strict rules are followed to ensure the best outcomes for all parties.
A big thank you to the Riverland Community and the Elizabeth Grove Community who supported us in our Cows for Cambodia fundraising. The kindness and generosity of our students and the community really shined through. Our students were learning about the specific character strengths of Hope, Love, Gratitude and Kindness. Christine Vlass our Positive Education specialist teacher travelled over to Cambodia to represent our School.
We did it! We have raised enough money for a goat! Please meet our goat (votes are currently being counted for his name). We purchased this goat from the Cows for Cambodia Charity for $185. This money was raised by our students. The goat will help Cambodian Families in the same way that the cow did. The charity provides them to families in a small herd, usually 3 x females and a male and allow them to breed until they have their own kid and then are moved onto the next family. Congratulations to our students who have sent hope across the world!
*UPDATE! Votes have been collated. We are proud to announce our Goat has been named ‘GORDON’. Welcome Gordon to our Elizabeth Grove Primary Community!
*UPDATE – May 2018
$134.35 was raised from our Cows for Cambodia end of term casual day! Welldone to our staff, community and students! We were able to buy a bag of rice for a Cambodian Family (this will feed them for 3 months!). We are so proud to be able to help people less fortunate then us.
