Review for Israel Longhorn Project, Redwood City, CA, USA
When I first met Robin, his enthusiasm for the Longhorn project was very infectious. This one small project could save millions of people lives living in the drought laded lands of Africa. What a simple plan of using Texas Longhorn cattle to breed with the local cattle to improve their survival rates during periods of drought. Israel has the expertise to raise and care for the longhorns before they are ready to be shipped to places like Kenya. This project could also be a stimulus for moving the Mideast towards more joint projects which would lead to peaceful coexistence for the region. Our teens and young adults in the United States are mostly unaware of conditions in other places in the world. This is a project where I can see modern world history classes can add a social action project to their curriculum. Simple ideas with a potential large impact are the most difficult to get off the ground because people think that it should have been done already. Once funding can start flowing into this project, I truly believe this project can be self sustaining one people can actually see the benefits.
