Could I also get this information for our two children? Jahir is in Ecuador and Koseyian is in Kenya.
Also if we send money for a cow for example do they have the ability to keep it? I know the children ultimately make the decision on what the money is spent on but I was just curious. For example I don't think they have "city limits" but what about enough space to keep the animal and finances to care for it.
Is someone from the center able to show them how to care for it if they have never owned one?
