Summary

Buy some goats and seeds for orphaned families in Zimbabwe - and improve a child's potential in life. Malnutrition is a serious and widespread problem in Zimbabwe, but you can help fight it through the gift of goats and gardens. So simple, yet SO powerful!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

If children don't get the nutrition they need, they lose what all kids deserve - the chance to reach their full potential. Malnutrition puts children at far greater risk of dying from HIV. It also permanently stunts their physical and intellectual growth. The problem contributes to a cycle of poverty that traps families for generations - but it can be broken through the provision of small livestock who produce milk to drink, manure for gardens, and money to families

How will this project solve this problem?

Goat milk allows orphaned children to receive the animal protein otherwise out of reach. Goat manure fertilizes gardens providing other essential nutrients. Plants grown to feed the goat reduce soil erosion and help improve small farm production. Since this project includes the distribution on seeds, as well as goats, it is a fantastic way to solve lots of issues.

Potential Long Term Impact

Children grow up bigger, smarter, and healthier; families earn extra income; and after reproducing, each family will pass on three goats on to another family, one who has already received proper training. These goats can change a child's life forever!
