Tending to the Herd
1 Goat in South Sudan
Goats provide families with protein and income to help them survive and thrive.
Goats nourish hungry children and families with healthy milk, cheese, and yogurt. Goats also give a much-needed income boost by providing offspring and extra dairy products for sale at the market.
One dairy goat can give up to 250 litres of milk a year. Two can be bred to produce 2 to 3 kids a year, and eventually multiply into a whole herd. Goat milk is easier to digest than cow’s milk and is an excellent source of calcium, protein, and other essential nutrients that growing children need. Goats are practical animals — flourishing in harsh climates while producing valuable manure to fertilize crops and vegetable gardens.
Help bring meaningful change to a family and a community in South Sudan with the simple gift of one goat.
