Goat rearing

Location:             Katine, 29 kms from Soroti town, East Uganda

Project leadtime: 6 months

Requestor:          James Alemu, coordinator, on behalf of Hands for Children

Description of the project:

Goats are quickly maturing animals, easy to breath at low cost and low in maintenance. The project will provide 40 goats to 40 children to raise at home to create an income and to support their education. Hands for Children support 200 orphans and vulnerable children. By this multiplication they strive to offer every child a goat within 2 years. A goat stable will be constructed with 10 goats as demonstration site for the beneficiaries and the local community. Goats are used for milk and meat, and the skin for fabrics, shoes and house mats. The drops and urine will be used as manure.

Objectives:

  • Train the beneficiaries in goat rearing
  • Provide a goat as income source so families can afford school fees, scholastic materials, uniforms, medicines, basic needs,…
  • Reduce malnutrition

Beneficiaries:

  • 200 orphans and vulnerable children who are included in extended families
  • Extended families who have space and a shelter for goat rearing
