Stanford Students provide dairy goats for impoverished communities
By selling photo opportunities with a goat on White Plaza, members of the InterVarsity Graduate Christian Fellowship raised $6,600 to purchase 84 dairy goats for families in poor areas. Why goats? Dairy goats provide families with protein-rich milk, up to a ton a year from one animal, according to the Fellowship. The extra milk is often sold for a much needed boost in income. The goats will be delivered through the charitable organization World Vision.
