Why Samaritan's Purse?
Samaritan's Purse was chosen, not for it's Christian-based works, but because it receives the highest ratings* among any charitable organizations that give agricultural animals to the impoverished.
In fact, Samaritan's Purse is the only such organization that was given 5 stars by the independent ranking groups.

In Niger, the statistical odds are stacked against girls. Consistently ranked at the bottom of the human development index, Niger also has one of the highest birth rates in the world.
Facing cultural and economic pressures, parents often allow their daughters to marry at a young age. Nearly three in every four girls will be married before they turn 18, and 44 percent will drop out before completing primary school.
In an effort to encourage girls and their families to value girls’ education, Samaritan’s Purse began a program called goats for girls. School-aged girls received a goat for breeding in order to supplement their households’ livelihoods and reduce the risk of girls dropping out of school for economic reasons.
