Ferndale Goats!

Posted on 12 August 2005
The current fundraising for goats to be given to poor families in Ethiopia has reached £111.

This is sufficient to buy 3 goats! The project ‘Farm Africa’ seeks to buy female goats. When a goat is given to a family and it produces kids the family are required to give one female kid back to the project. The remainder of the kids can be used to produce milk and meat to supplement the family’s diet and surplus can be sold to buy oxen to plough the ground and seeds to grow crops such as avocados. In turn, crops can be sold and the money used to buy books so that their children can go to school.
