Rural villages rarely have access to domestic animals. Through WH, rural villages receive goats, which serve as a valuable source of capital for the community. Our goat program provides a sustainable source of domestic animals for village communities by creating a “Goat Committee” that is responsible for the care of the animals across the village, including what we call a “Goat pass-on” where the first-born female in each herd is passed on to another family so every family in the village can start its own herd.
The possession of goats serves to build the wealth of families in the village and gives them access to valuable protein in the goats’ milk. The manure is also used as fertilizer, thus improving crop yields as well.
