A goat provides a struggling family with extra income, and a source of milk for their growing children.
For families with no prior animal rearing experience, goats are one of the easiest animals to raise. Importantly, goats can survive in tough, dry weather conditions, and, with no special dietary requirements, they are one of the simplest and cheapest animals to feed. This gift also provides families with training on animal husbandry and business skills, which helps caregivers to increase their herd and make an income.
By gifting a goat:
- You’ll provide a hardy animal that is easy to raise and cheap to feed.
- Families can become self-sufficient as they increase the size of their herd.
- You can help children to become healthier as they receive vital nutrients through the milk.
