Donate a Goat to Empower Moms


For children who are at risk of malnutrition, the complete protein derived from goats is critical to improving their health. Goats also provide a source of milk and cheese for families, which can be consumed or traded for other food produce.


Goats are distributed through Village Savings and Loans Associations – microfinance programs that teach women effective animal care and breeding techniques as part of overall literacy and numeracy, business and marketing training.


While gender equality training is an important part of our programs, many women in sub-saharan Africa are still prevented from owning land. Fortunately, goats take up little space so when you donate a goat you're giving a mom financial independence and the chance to lift her family out of poverty.


Goats are great at producing other goats; quickly and relatively easily. As a result, one goat quickly becomes the foundation for a growing herd that offers families income for the long-term either by trading up to other livestock such as cows or using the income to start a small business (see Woinshet's story below).

I sold 10 goats for 6,850 birr, and bought a deep freezer and fridge and started selling cold drinks.

As a result, I've doubled my daily average income plus I still have 13 goats in good condition. Woinshet Tefera, 34-YEAR-OLD WIDOW From ETHIOPIA

How It Works


Donate a Goat here. We'll source it there

The goat you donate will be sourced locally, i.e. as close to the recipient as possible. This approach provides an extra boost to local economies while keeping transport costs to a minimum.


Send a Free Card to a Special Somebody

With each goat you donate you will be able to select a FREE Printed, PDF or eCard to send to a special somebody. Card designs include holiday (pictured), goat-themed, birthday, teacher, wedding plus many more. You can also buy a goat without selecting a card.
