  • A goat joins Western Engineering's Undergraduate Services Office – No Kidding!
    Undergraduate Services Office staff purchased a goat in support of World Vision’s 2006 Christmas Gift project. The goat that was purchased will be given to a family in need overseas. According to World Vision, one goat alone can provide a family in need up to 350 litres of milk each year. Goats can survive well in the harshest of climates, eat grass and leaves and produce fertilizer for a family’s vegetable garden. If more than one goat is purchased, they can breed and produce several kids per year- the beginning of a whole herd!
