SWIWSCO has thirteen goats. They will be used to produce milk for the children. The goats are kept on SWIWSCO grounds. They are easily maintained as they graze on the grasses in font of the orphanage. There is little to no cost to SWIWSCO in order to keep the goats. The goats are cared for by the SWIWSCO staff and children. Eight goats was donated by our Volunteer Mr. Michael Weldon from england on October 2011, thanks to Michael, friends and family who make that happened.
The Art Project is the newest edition to the SWIWSCO Project's. The project is being ran and operated by board members and volunteers. SWIWSCO was able to find a local painter willing to donate his time and artistic abilities to paint 100 canvases in an effort to raise money for the children. The SWIWSCO children have helped Ema, the artist construct the frames for the canvases. The paintings will be sold to local tourist, volunteers and anyone else interested in supporting SWIWSCO.
