A goat is the Useful Gift that keeps on giving! Milk is a nutritious addition to a family’s diet and goat manure makes an excellent fertiliser. Goats can be bred and passed on to others, creating income and allowing more people in the community to access these benefits too. Buy a goat and contribute to a long-term poverty-fighting project.

How your gift helps

In eastern Zambia, many people face food insecurity and unstable livelihoods. Shawa (pictured) has two goats, accessed with the support of TEAR’s partner Reformed Church in Zambia - Diaconia Department. The goats are a valuable asset and source of nutritious milk for her family, and fertiliser made from goat manure has improved her crops, contributing to an improved livelihood. And through a breeding and sharing program, the benefits extend throughout the community – ensuring transformation is within reach for everyone!
