We are happy to present our progress report of the project 'Goat for Livelihood support for Poor Women’ which started one year back by Azad India Foundation. We identify the potential women beneficiaries who have no financial support and give them goats to supplement their income.
We had given one pair of goats to Hamida from village Sathbolia, Block Pothia at the inception of the project. She has three children without any steady source of income. She works as a landless labor during the time of the cultivation.
Due to Covid19 pandemic ,Indian government announced total lockdown from the month of March for nearly two months. It created hardships and economic loss of many people especially living in the rural areas of the country.There was no source of income for majority of these people as they relied mainly on agriculture.
AIF team revisited Hamida's home after the Covid19 lockdown in Kishanganj ended. Hamida said that she sold her goats for Rs 9700 as animal traders were not coming from outside at the local haat. She got good price for her goats which she used for buying ration and food supplies. The goats were her family's life saver and provided her with money during the time of the crisis. She still has 5 goats left which she said would multiply soon.
We need the funds to reach out to many more women like Hamida.
Donating now will enable us to purchase goats at a fair price and ensure that the women receive the best breed. Goats are bought locally as their chances of survival are highest in Kishanganj.
