Donations in Action – Goats, Zambia
When we say goats are a fantastic resource for families in need, we’re not kidding! Thanks to the Donations with a Difference program, 42 year old Jennifer in Zambia now has seven goats which provide over three litres of milk per day for her two children, Yvonne and Maurice.
“The ones (goats) I got have already given me four extras” says Jennifer proudly. “Early next year (2010) I will pass on four she-goats to my neighbour because I know by then the other goat would have given birth to a she-goat.”
As well as providing an ongoing solution to poverty and poor nutrition, Jennifer says the ChildFund program has boosted the self-belief and empowerment of women in the community, which is an important step for improving the lives of children.
