  • My granddaughter is working very hard to put herself through college to become a doctor of Mental Health. In doing so she will become the first in our family to get a college education. My husband and I were working hard so that we could help her pay for school. Due to the closing of the coal mines in W.Va and me suffering a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury ) plus my husband trying to start his own business which failed we are unable to help her pay for college and at times so broke that we have to beg so that we have food. My granddaughter will be the first in our family to go college and graduate. Our granddaughter is Bi-Racial and does really well staying on the Deans List. We need help to find her any scholarships that could help her. Thank you.

In Ethiopia in general, there is the deficiency of animal feed. This shortage causes low production and productivity in the country. When I upgrade my skill, I try to solve such kind of problem in animal production sector to increase production and productivity. Ethiopia is one of the countries that leading African countries by a number of animal quantity and last by quality and quantity of production and productivity. All this problem is happened due to the low level of knowledge concerning to animal production. On the behind of me when I get the chance, I try to solve these obstacles of livestock production. So, I hope that I got this chance from the discipline by Animal science, Animal production, poultry, fishery, any field of the Livestock sector.
