Tristan Mischke-Reeds are trying to raise funds for the school children of the Mhombole School in Tanzania to establish a sustainable milk-selling business. The mils sales support school fees. The cows need vaccinations, food, and a full-time keeper.

In July 2015, the Mischke-Reeds family visited Tanzania. While the beautiful landscape and wildlife of the region provided some amazing sights for the family, the poverty and suffering of the native people was just as striking. Brothers Kirian and Tristan were surprised by the kindness and compassion of the local villagers, and by their acceptance of their way of life, despite the crippling poverty.

During their time in Tanzania, the Mischke-Reeds visited a local school where previous donors had helped to get the children a proper bathroom with running water. The family learned that the school had recently purchased to fully-grown cows to supply the school with milk to sell, and to provide meat later on. However, neither cow had been vaccinated, which meant the were susceptible to diseases that could taint the milk and meat. Without the vaccinations, all the money spent to purchase the cows will be wasted. The vaccinations and a caregiver for the cows will cost $250 per month, so $3,000 is needed to get the cows healthy and keep them healthy for a solid year.

Kirian and Tristan have done a great job getting the cow project off the ground, but they need your help. The school children were filled with joy over the news that the brothers  were planning t help them. These children genuinely need these cows, not only for their immediate welfare but also for their lives later on, since they will learn how to take care of cows in the process and learn how it feels when their hard work pays off—when they see how happy and healthy their cows are.

Laura Vaughan and Lalafofofo.org is helping the Mischke-Reeds get donations for the cow project directly to the school where it they are needed, instead of risking the funds being skimmed by corrupt middle men along the way, as is the fate of so many Tanzanian relief donations. Kirian and Tristan have set up a Cow Project GoFundMe site, which has so far raised $1,095.

During their time in Tanzania, the Mischke-Reed family visited a local school, where previous donors had helped to get the children a proper bathroom with running water. The family learned that the school had recently purchased two fully-grown cows to supply the school with milk to sell, and to provide meat later on. However, neither cow had been vaccinated, which meant they were susceptible to diseases that could taint the milk and meat. Without the vaccinations, all the money spent to purchase the cows will be wasted.
