Christmas Goat

£25.00

Product description

An Oxfam goat is a great gift. Sourced locally and fully vaccinated, they’re fit, healthy and ready to supply a family with milk to drink or sell – not forgetting the crop-boosting manure. And because this gift includes business training, a family can get the best possible price for what their goat produces. When their goat has kids, they can go on to help another family or be sold to raise money for essentials.

This gift supports our Making a Living (ML) projects.

Christmas Goat

For families living in Niger, one of the poorest countries in the world, a single goat can be the start of something great, just ask Zarou. Zarou’s family was one of those identified by her local community, Village de Inakazam, of being in the greatest need of Oxfam support. So, we gave her a goat. And now she’s a budding businesswoman. “Before receiving my animal, life was difficult. My husband had nothing either. We had a goat two months ago. That gave birth and we now have four. Now I am taken care of.” Zarou Houssa. The goats’ milk provides nutrition for her and her family, and Zarou is able to produce goats cheese which she sells at the market to raise much-needed income to help pay for food, medicines and school fees. And over time, there will be lots more little goats which she can sell or pass on to other vulnerable families in her community.
