The small livestock project seeks to empower orphan families who are infected and affected by HIV AIDS. These families are capacitated through training and then assisted to start the livestock project. This year, the areas of Mayezane, Mahwanke, Sizeze, Sibhula, Coronation and Gwaranyemba received goats with each orphan family getting three female goats.Maphane site received chickens with each family getting five birds.Mayezane and Mahwanke sites also received rabbits with each orphan family receiving two female rabbits.

Veterinary assistants were trained in all these sites and were equipped with veterinary kits. They are very active treating the distributed livestock and assisting other community members with issues pertaining to their livestock.
