It just might be the most unique gift you’ll give this year. It most certainly will be the most life-changing. Goat’s milk means important protein for growing children, especially girls. The sale of offspring means an income to pay for essentials – like an education – that open up opportunities for girls. Hoofs down, we’re m-a-a-a-d about this gift!
This gift has benefitted almost 16,000 people in Benin, Indonesia, Kenya and Sierra Leone – people like Melanie, from Benin, who received a goat along with training in pen construction, livestock management and breeding. Soon gift recipients were sharing their mother goats for breeding purposes, so even more people can now build better lives.
“Imagine,” says Melanie, "I started with four goats and they have given birth to five. My herd will grow and I can sell some to meet my children's needs. I do not know how to thank Plan for this project, which will lead us to be happy and financially secure."
