Description: Passing on the Gift of Prosperity: Animal Grants for Vulnerable People
USAID|Yaajeende provides animal grants to vulnerable families as part of USAID's Feed the Future program to improve food security, nutrition and incomes in the regions of Matam and Kedougou and in the department of Bakel.
Participants in the remote villages of Sinthiou Fissa and Bonjisinthiang gathered to celebrate community unity and to celebrate Yaajeende or abundance as they receive their sheep during an animal placement ceremony in Bakel, Senegal.
One participant said, "The sheep will help us improve our lives. They will help improve our nutrition, our education and our health."
By the end of the 5-year project more than 5,500 families will receive animals and training from USAID|Yaajeende staff. And as the animals multiply thousands of new families will benefit from grants.
This project is being implemented in Sengal by NCBA CLUSA International in partnership with Heifer International, Counterpart International, and Sheladia Associates, Inc.

Description: The Spirit of Cooperation: The Story of Cooperatives and How Americans Use Them to Improve Their Lives and Their Communities
Americans have always believed in working together to solve their problems. That's the whole idea behind cooperatives. Cooperatives have helped Americans meet their needs for such things as credit, housing, child care, food, consumer goods and services, utilities, and health care.
And that's the story of the "The Spirit of Cooperation".
From America's first successful cooperative--a mutual insurance company formed by Benjamin Franklin, to an international communications cooperative--Intelsat, the documentary demonstrates how cooperatives work works, describes what they've done, and helps people understand how they can benefit from belonging to one. The show blends history, economics, and interviews with members of cooperatives to explain the cooperative concept.
