For a school project, Jessica Novak had to identify a problem in Africa and come up with a solution for it. A missionary friend of hers who was working with World Vision in Rwanda told her about the children in Rwanda who had lost their parents during the 1994 genocide and were struggling to survive.
Jessica came up with a project called Kids for Kids, Goats for Rwandan Children. She raised money to buy baby goats for child-headed households in Rwanda.

What do you think of Jessica's project? What other kinds of projects might help these children trying to survive on their own?
