The goal is simple: Encourage people to help a needy family and/or community this holiday season by purchasing for them a goat from World Vision.
But the bigger reason is this: 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. A healthy dairy goat can give up to 16 cups of milk a day. Goat milk 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.
