Empower families with the resources animals provide.
With chickens and a goat, you’ll help provide a steady supply of eggs, milk, and protein to feed children and help families. We’ve paired our most popular animals so you can give struggling families a gift they’ll never forget.
By providing food and income, goats put families on the road to self-sufficiency. Goat’s 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 also flourish in harsh climates and produce valuable manure to fertilize crops and vegetable gardens.
Chickens are equally easy to raise and can naturally multiply to impact generations of children. Each family that receives chickens can sell the offspring for extra income or share them with other families in need. Chicks require little money, space, or food to thrive and grow — making them an ideal business venture for a single mom or vulnerable family.
Your gift will help children like 8-year-old Honest in Zambia. When severe drought destroyed his family’s only source of income, a maize crop, food was scarce and the family couldn’t afford to send the children to school. Things turned around when the family received an unexpected blessing: a gift of goats.
“Since we received the goats … our lives have changed. We eat healthy meals and sell some [goats] to get money for our children’s school needs,” explains Honest’s mom, Patricia. “Owning goats is like having … extra money in a bank.”
Today Honest and his sister, Mercy, have plenty to eat and can attend school — a priority for their parents. And the additional income from goats is allowing the family to invest in improved maize farming — multiplying their sources of nutrition and income and building their resilience. Patricia says, “Receiving the goats from World Vision is a dream come true for us.”
Your gift of a goat and two chickens will equip even more families to realize their dreams of providing a brighter future for their children!
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
