Give A Goat
One goat for a family

Goats are among the most 'giving' animals around. And more children around the world actually rely on goats' milk than on cows' milk. Perhaps that's because goats can thrive in harsh climates where other livestock can't--surviving on grasses and leaves that other animals won't eat.
Goats are tough to be certain, yet they are amazingly gentle. So friendly, in fact, that it is the children who often care for a family's goat--building bonds and learning lifesaving skills. Heifer goats can give a family up to a gallon of milk every day. Many families use what's left over to make yogurts, cheeses or sell at the market for income to pay for clothes, school and medicine. And with two to three kids each year, passing-on the gift of goats in easy. It's a gift that keeps on giving and giving.
