Please help buy a farm
We are also working to support Waris Dirie and her Desert Flower Foundation in her efforts to buy small farms so that women in Africa can use the land for agriculture and training, enabling them to learn the skills to grow their own food and generate an income. As an international super model, coming from Africa she is now not only providing medical support to victims of FGM like her, but she believes that woman need to generate an income and become independent and as there are no jobs in Africa, we have to create them. She told me "a woman with her own income can support her family regularly, not just with the bride price. And an educated and independent woman will not mutilate her daughter because there is no need to do so."
Waris has already raised 10 million euros, and we are wanting to reach 20 million by 2013. Farms will give women income, independence and power, and the right to protect their young girls from genital mutilation. On farms the women can grow their family's food, create an income, and breed goats to sell to the Rights of Girls Initiative.
Thank You so very much for your donation, and especially, Thank You for your caring
Donating a goat not only gives the family milk, fertiliser meaning now they can grow vegetables, breeding options and a small income, but more importantly saves a beautiful young girl from a cruel painful experience, a life of infection and pain, the horrors of her wedding night, and gives her the right to her own body and a proud future.
