Milk, manure, magic!

A single goat provides gallons of healthy milk as well as providing manure that helps improve soil fertility. Along with this, when they breed, the kid goats are given to other families so they can benefit too. The farmer, the land and the animals, all working perfectly together.

After Chilouanga's father died several years ago, her mother struggled to support five children on her own. Thankfully, she received a goat from Concern which helped her to feed her family and can now make sure they no longer go hungry. What's more, she has helped other families by passing on kid goats too.

This gift goes towards our Livelihoods programme.
