New Kids on the Block!

In March, 40 of the Morning Star goats were moved across to Providence to develop a new multiplication centre to feed into a new community east of Bulawayo.  Thando and Keith have moved across and have both settled well.  We have plans to update their living quarters so that their families can join them here at Providence.  All the training and time Norma and Diamond have invested in them has been an incredible blessing, and trust that their knowledge and experience will continue as we expand the project.

We have built a few enclosures, one for the bucks and a maternity unit for the does when they kid. 

In June we had a primary school visit the farm, the children got to see lots of different aspects to farm life, including how the project is designed to help vulnerable families in our community, and the goats loved having kids feed them treats from the greenhouses!! 

Our numbers have increased with the birth of 6 kids. Gary is organizing transport for 6 beneficiary does and Fred from Morning Star later this week!!  Sadly we have also had a few loses for first time moms, but hopefully they will do better next time round. 

We have also built a "milk bar” and I will start to experiment for cheese making when the volumes increase.  I am grateful for the milk that we are getting at the moment because we are supplementing a lamb that has been rejected by its mom.  

As we come to the end of our winter we look forward to the next batch of kids on the block!! 

Everyone here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS, and our partners in Africa, thank you for your continued support of this important project.  If you would like to learn even more about this project and others, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@AFCAids.org.
