Your gift of a goat will be a much-celebrated blessing for a family in need — and can help them make lasting change in their lives and community.
Goat milk provides great protein to help children grow. The family can also sell any extra milk the goats produce to earn money for medicines and other necessities.
A healthy dairy goat can give up to 16 cups of milk a day. 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 are practical animals — flourishing in harsh climates while producing valuable manure to fertilize crops and vegetable gardens.
Your gift will help children like Rosemary, a sponsored child in Zambia. Her world changed when her family received their gift of goats. Her family struggled with hunger, and often went into debt just to be able to buy food. But when Rosemary’s family was given the gift of goats from the World Vision Gift Catalog, things changed. Rosemary’s grandfather remembers saying, “When I received the goats, I told myself, ‘Here comes the freedom.’”
Goats enabled Rosemary’s family to diversify their crops and try new income-generating activities. Rosemary rose to #1 in her class at school and began nurturing dreams of becoming a chef.
It’s hard to think of a better gift for families like Rosemary’s than a goat … unless it’s 2 goats!
Monthly giving: the simple way to make your donations do more. Give to the Animal & Agriculture Fund.
Monthly giving is the most effective way to help the children and families who need it most. It lowers costs and puts more of your money to work changing lives. Plus, your donations will be delivering the right solution at just the right time. And while your gifts are at work changing lives, you’ll get to see the power of your generosity through quarterly updates and the World Vision magazine.
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
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.
