Goats Spark Growth in Nepal
The Goats Give Back project in Nepal aims to provide food security, proper nutrition and self-sufficiency. It will also ensure small farmers' participation in the national food market.
Many people in the village of Kabilash in central Nepal rely on goats to obtain milk to feed their families. Up to now, they lacked the knowledge to feed and care for them properly. This, combined with limited connections to other markets, had locked them in a state of poverty.
How We're Helping
The Goats Give Back project provides the key to solving these problems. Heifer is encouraging improved health practices for the goats maintained by farm families. We are training Community Animal Health Workers to take better care of the goats, which will boost milk production and allow families to rely less on imported resources.
Heifer Nepal is also forming self-help groups, primary co-ops and district unions, mobilizing them through a framework of mutual trust. This creates a sustainable values-based network that allows communities to grow together.
This holiday season you can double the impact of your gift to a Heifer International project in Nepal that will help poor farmers through gifts of livestock and training. This project focuses on livestock ownership and small business development. With your help, these poor farmers will be trained to transform themselves into powerful food producers.
Act now to double the impact of your gift and help us accomplish this mission. Our goal through this fundraising effort is to match the $3 million raised by our generous supporters this fiscal year for Heifer's Nepal projects. You have the power to help hundreds of thousands of lives take a turn for the better. Help these small farmers take control of their future and secure the foundation for a life free from hunger and poverty.
Now I know it all depends on your own hard work... We have planted varieties of fodder and forage to feed the goats and improve their productivity. My small effort has helped my family have a better life. Manamaya Nepali, Gorkha District
