Goats for Gains
The Goats for Gains project is a sustainable capacity building mechanism designed to break the chain of poverty in the most vulnerable parts of society. Ever since the establishment of the project approximately 50-70 farmers were selected each year to participate in the program.
In 2017, 112 goats were distributed to 57 people affected by TB. In order to make the project sustainable the recipients were asked to mate the goats in order to return kids to the program. In that way the project can extend without spending further funds than those available.
Our Blossom Staff has done monthly follow-ups to ensure the well being of the goats and to monitor the effect of projects. Last year out of 142 new goats born, 32 of them were returned to the farm. This project has made remarkable impact in improving the livelihoods of vulnerable people by generating income. The Goats for Gains project is a sustainable capacity building mechanism designed to break the chain of poverty in the most vulnerable parts of the society.
The project came to an end of 2018. We hope to secure new funds in the future for successful continuation of this project.
Project duration: 2014-2018
