Facts and Stats About Our Progress

Guatemala Goats Project
Guatemala Goats Project

During this past quarter GlobalGiving donations were used to support the purchase 28 pure breed goats (20 female, 8 males) from Mexico. These animals will be used for the improvement of local breeds  and increasing milk production for at least 1600 goat-owner families.

Goat milk is an important source of animal protein for young children, in addition to increasing their sense of caring for animals.

A recent formal, external evaluation of Save the Children’s activities determined that chronic malnutrition among beneficiary children (less than 5 years old) of Save the Children food security activities in the highlands of Guatemala was reduced from 78.2% (August 2006) to 70.3% (August 2011).

Save the Children and the rural indigenous population of Quiché are grateful for GlobalGiving donations in support of this relatively simple, sustainable initiative in favor of reducing malnutrition.
