Goat
Suggested Donation $75.00

What can the gift of a goat mean to a family?  A good dairy goat can supply all the nutritious rich milk a family can use every day.  As a matter of fact, a goat can supply over a ton of milk every year.  What an investment!

Extra milk can be sold or used to make cheese, butter, or yogurt.  Families often feed their goats vegetable waste from their gardens and use goat manure as fertilizer.  Families need milk, especially babies. When food is scarce and mothers can no longer breastfeed, goat's milk can mean the difference between life and death.

Goats are a source of income.  They produce two to three kids per year that can be sold.  Goats provide food.  Goats are eaten regularly by hundreds of thousands of people in the area we work in.  And they are easy to take care of.  Goats will eat almost anything.  When you give a goat, you give, hope, opportunity, and dignity to a poor Christian family.
Pigs and Piglets
Suggested Donation $75.00 - or fill in your most generous gift.

In some countries in Asia, and particularly the Himalaya Mountain Range, backyard pig farming can account for over 65% of the countries pork production.  Because most of these farms are located far from small city inhabitants, they are perfect income opportunities for those poor families in the rural areas.

A sow will typically reproduce 8 - 20 piglets per year making it an active income resource.  Commercial pig production is still a developing business in Nepal and North India with pork being exported to Sikkim, Bhutan, and other countries.  Many rural households have two or three pigs but the very poor have none.  Pigs need very little land and can range in open fields and thrive on by-products from kitchen waste or gardens.

They are a important souce of protein, nourishment for crops, and potential income when sold.  Give hope and dignity today!
