Empower a family with a new source of nutrition and income: a goat! As well as providing milk and manure fertiliser, goats can be bred and passed on to other families, sharing the benefits throughout the community. Buy a goat and contribute to a long-term poverty-fighting project.

How your gift helps

“We used to migrate for work in the cities, but now we don’t need to. Now we have our vegetable farm and we’re raising goats together!” This women’s group in India has some amazing projects on the go – including raising goats! With training and resources from Tearfund’s Christian partner Emmanuel Hospital Association, the group uses goat manure to fertilise their farm, and harvest the goats’ nutritious milk. Income earned from selling goat offspring means these women no longer have to migrate away from their families for work, too!
