Summary

Buy some goats and seeds for orphaned families in Congo and Zimbabwe - and improve a child's potential in life. Malnutrition is a serious and widespread problem both these countries, exacerbated by COVID19, and you can help fight it through the gift of goats and gardens and the training we provide beneficiaries. So simple, yet SO powerful!

Challenge

If children don't get the nutrition they need, they lose what all kids deserve - the chance to reach their full potential. Malnutrition puts children at far greater risk of dying from HIV. It also permanently stunts their physical and intellectual growth. The problem contributes to a cycle of poverty that traps families for generations - but it can be broken through the provision of small livestock who produce milk to drink, manure for gardens, and money to families

Solution

Goat milk allows orphaned children to receive the animal protein otherwise out of reach. Goat manure fertilizes gardens providing other essential nutrients to children and their guardians. Plants grown to feed the goats and families reduce soil erosion and help improve small farm production. Since this project includes the distribution on seeds, as well as goats and training, it is a fantastic way to solve lots of issues.

Long-Term Impact

Children grow up bigger, smarter, and healthier; families earn extra income; and after reproducing, each family will pass on three goats on to another family, one who has already received proper training. These goats and gardens can change a child's life forever!
