Peter is training women how to raise goats to provide an income.
To provide 60 women a pair of goats and teach them to raise the goats and market the goats’ milk.
Baringo County is one of the driest counties in Kenya. Most inhabitants are pastoralists whose main source of livelihood is animals. Very few girls get a secondary level school education, because they are married at a young age, lack family planning understanding and have many children. Husbands often do not remain to support their families, leaving women who are uneducated to be the sole provider for their families.
This project is directly addressing the poor economic position of 60 women by buying each one of them two goats and training them in the practice of goat keeping and marketing the goat’s milk. Additionally, women are being taught to reproduce and raise young goats to sell for a profit. The goal is for the mothers to educate their children in the care and reproduction of goats, which provides for future immediate family income needs and the needs of future generations.
