The months of December 2020 and January 2021 were quite busy for the members of Asosyasyon Fanm Vanyan Fyevil (Fyevil Association of Courageous Women). Our Regional Monitor worked closely with the management committee of AFVF along with 2 two of their previously contractaed Veterinarians to evaluate the progress of this project and their goats. Approximately 21 members participated in these meetings where they discussed the following:
Difficulties they faced in acquiring essential medications needed to care for the ill goats.
Revamping the process of distributing the baby goats.
Monitoring the evolution of the troop and how the goats are interacting with each other.
Necessity of reform in an effort to minimize miscarriages among the goats.
Based on those points, here are the solutions that the women were able to come up with:
The veterinarians will assist the organization in getting the medications needed that are most prevalent throughout the troop.
Closer monitoring of the female goats that suffer more than one miscarriage to move them elsewhere when necessary.
More frequent meetings to be held throughout the organization to discuss, in detail, the distribution method so no one is skipped accidentally or feels they were skipped.
Although the itnernal work was a lot, the goats continued to produce. There were 16 goats that were born in the beginning of this year. The original troop now has 216 kids born since the inception of the project. So far, 172 have been distributed to 120 of AFVF's members. Even the kids have given birth! 48 of the once baby goats already gave birth to 73 kids of their own!
In addition to their flourishing goat project, these women have also begun filling bags to prepare their seedlings for the reforestation aspect of their project.
