Since our last update, our goat tribe has increased!! We currently have 36 females, 6 bucks and 9 kids!!
We have started a weekly dipping program to keep the ticks and the tick borne diseases at bay. Otherwise all the animals are healthy. We have a “Pick Your Own” day at the farm planned in December. The goats and the project will be part of the kid's farm tour, hoping to encourage local awareness and support.
At the end of August we had a massive bush fire which burnt through about 2/3 of the plot, burning a large portion of the grazing we were using for the goats, we have been supplementing their food with hay, molasses, salt and some meal.
All 4 of the greenhouses are all looking really good and will hopefully be full of produce for our “Pick Your Own” day in December!
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.
