In the past, one Asian community’s farmers had no realistic means of developing extra income or improving their dietary habits, but you helped BGRI change that.
BGR International’s field partners have been training a group in the animal husbandry skills they needed to raise, care for, and inseminate goats. Many families are participating in the program, with over 30 farmers receiving not only the goats, but also the necessary skills to breed and provide medical care for them.
Some farmers were also able to learn the method by which goat manure can be processed in order to sell it! A total of 75 goats have been bought and inseminated, with a resulting 22 young. The kids were then divided out among additional interested families, helping exponentially more people than originally anticipated!
