Students at Radnor Middle School have been busy crafting funky, tie-dyed collars and leashed for the 50 milk goats that will be delivered to children at Buppala Primary School later this month. The goats — funded by Radnor students, friends and families — will change the health and welfare of multitudes of families.
Through a pen pal exchange between the two schools, the village of Buppala has been transformed over the past seven years. Radnor students have learned that they have the capacity to literally raise up a village, and Buppala students are learning that they can sustain an organic garden, develop a small business from their crops, and feed each student a healthy meal every day they attend school.
Sixth grade teacher Jodi Sabre will be traveling to Uganda to help deliver the goats to Buppala families and will share pictures and stories on her blog.
