Dairy goats are easy to raise, even in harsh African climates. Mailes and her family are getting up to 16 cups of nutritious milk a day! They’re also able to use their goat’s manure as fertiliser in the family vegetable garden.
How this gift helps
The gift of a goat is helping Zambian farmer Kennedy keep his grandson in school. Kennedy received a goat from a Gifts for Good donor and, with training from ChildFund Zambia, turned this initial investment into a small herd. When his grandson finishes primary school, Kennedy will sell a goat to pay for his school fees. Chola, ChildFund Zambia’s Sponsors Relations Manager said: “The goat program is one of our most successful programs”. As part of the program, a baby goat is passed to a neighbouring family, which sustains and expands the program.
