31/01/2012 - Goat Handover

Gift of the Givers hands over 22 Hybrid Goats to 10 members of the Mwawi Goat Breeding Club. This distribution is aimed at encouraging smallholder farmers to diversify activities that can give them reliable sources of income so that they are able to eliminate poverty in their families. We expect many families to benefit from this project as it is designed in such a way that the new she-goats will be passed-on to other beneficiaries upon multiplication and from which the families will realize good income through sales of the goats thereby improving their living standard.

Amonst those present were representative from Bunda College of Agriculture and the Veterinary Department for Mulanje District.

Total Project Value: R 23 191.00.
