Goats are vital to the success of our four core programs. For that reason we decided to to offer goats again this holiday season in the hopes of increasing our program goat count by 50 goats to reach 800 by January 1, 2019!
Goats flourish in Haiti’s climate; they require minimal care and upkeep. Right now, we have 751 goats in our program; our goal is 790.
The gift of a single goat can provide:
NUTRITION: Goat’s milk is a sustainable source of calcium, protein, and other essential nutrients.
ECONOMIC STABILITY: A single goat can provide ongoing resources for an entire family.
By selling any extra milk or baby goats, our families are able to earn money for medicines and other necessities.
EDUCATION: Many families have been able to sell their goats at the start of the school year to fund their children’s educations. We are happy to support these families and their local schools through our efforts.
More about Consider Haiti goats:
Consider Haiti breeds Haitian female does with a Nubian Boer buck to attain hearty offspring adapted to local conditions. They are delivered to families in Montrouis, Fond Baptist and Ivoir. We work closely with the families in the Community Health Program to ensure that they receive the gift of the goat and are able to utilize future offspring for
nutrition, milk income and school tuition. So you as you can see goats really are the key to many Haitian families that would otherwise find it nearly impossible to provide ongoing financial and nutritional support to their families.
