A great Program

The gift of a pregnant goat to a widow, orphan, or handicapped person is a life changing gift in rurual Uganda.  The recipient agrees they will not eat the goat!  They can only sell or trade the goat.  If they manage their gift well they can accumualte a herd of 10 to 20 goats in 5 years.  They can trade 7 goats for a milk cow or a bull.  It gives them a source of income.  I have interviewed many women who recived their first goat several years ago and the success stories are inspiring.  This truly is a gift that keeps on givin.

Still Changing Lives

A team will be traveling to Uganda in October to work alongside our Ugandan friends on several projects.  One of those projects is to give as many as 50 pregnant goats to a deserving widow or orphan.  These goat distributions are always a highlight for teams.  The team gets to visit a remote village, experience village life as they have a meal in the village and meet the village leaders and the recipients of the goats. This one pregnant goat can be the start of a herd that they can use to sell or trade gaots for goods and services. We always hear from the tribal leaders and governents officials how much this program is helping their village.  Very gratifying.  This is one of the most impactful, life changing projects we do in Uganda.  Thank you for your support.

The gift that keeps on giving

A team from Corvallis, Oregon in the USA went to Soroti Uganda to participate in 5 day retreat of encouragement for 100 students that are sponsored by families in the US.  While on this trip the team also distributed 60 pregnant goats to  widows and orphans.  The recipients are not allowed to eat the goats, they can only sell or trade them for needed items.  As these goats have babies, the recipients are able to build a sizable herd to can make a significant impact on their finanicial wellbeing. This is one of the most impactful programs that we sponsor in Uganda.  We have distributed close to 500 goats in the past several years.
