A goat can be a godsend to families who can’t manage bigger livestock.
Goats are a valuable part of our livestock programme, whether we give a local goat or a dairy goat. The type of goat given is dependent on the family’s needs. Local goats provide meat and manure and dairy goats are good for those with HIV/Aids, as the milk is packed with nutrients and proven to increase the effectiveness of HIV/Aids medication.
And as goats have kids, not only do families have a healthy diet and healthy soil, but also more goats to sell or pass on to neighbours in need.
Did you know?
Adding animal manure compost to crops can see yields increase about threefold, sometimes even more!
We give this gift in Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia.
