Second-graders ‘Read to Feed’
Second-graders at Windham Primary School were presented a
“Read to Feed” challenge by the Sebago Lake Rotary Club: Read for 500 hours in exchange forcontributions to Heifer International, an organization that provides livestock to villages in third world countries. The livestock is raised for food to share with other local communities to encourage an economy of barter or trade.
The students rose to the challenge and selected pigs, lambs, chickens and a garden basket containing seeds and other useful items to start a garden as their contribution.
Congratulations to the second graders for meeting the challenge and helping people in another country who are in need of a helping hand.
