College of Arts & Science alumna Jamie Neufeld (BSc’13), now a student in the U of S Western College of Veterinary Medicine, is currently working with Vets Without Borders (VWB) in Uganda. Through the VWB goat pass-on project, Neufeld and other volunteers help impoverished women in Uganda provide for their families by distributing loaned goats, teaching livestock husbandry and training locals in veterinary care.
Neufeld has been documenting her experiences on the VWB blog.
