Plan Moo successfully creates sustainability in Ecuador

Plan Moo - sustainable education
Plan Moo - sustainable education

For the past few years, we have trialled 'Plan Moo' a sustainability project. Whereby a child going into secondary school receives a milking-cow. 

Milking cows are an excellent investment and a stable form of income. As milk is a staple part of most peoples diets as well as the health benefits of milk in the community. The proceeds of the sale of milk covers secondary school fee's and costs for the students. 

Delightfully, It has been a huge success and the hopes of purchasing more cows, costing around $800 each, can create a herd that can benefit other areas in the community, like food programs and local teacher salaries. 

We plan to increase the herd in the future, depending on funds.
