Buy a goat!
As part of Kathy’s Centre we will be setting up a model goat farm to enable us to train the local community in best practice for animal husbandry and basic veterinary skills. The small breeding herd will also provide an income for the centre.
Additionally, goats form a vital part of our HEAL (Health, Empowerment and Livelihood) programme in Mayuge District. Young women and girls, who have received enterprise training and begun saving with their HEAL group, are given goats to breed themselves. Such enterprises provide the women and girls with access to their own income, enabling them to support themselves and their families.
If you would like to purchase a goat to help develop our first herd, please donate £115 here. For an extra £15 you can even give it name!
So far we have commitment to buy 12 does including Roxy, Cilla, Mabel, Myra, Bluebell, Tilly, Chris, Kay, and our buck, Goaty-McGoat Face!
NEWS FLASH – Thanks to the Bollin School PTA who recently helped raise funds to buy a doe called Yo-Yo at their Summer Fair!
Kathy’s Centre is due to open in September 2017 and we are still fundraising to complete the external ground works, including the pre-school playgound. Any contributions are gratefully received and 90p in every £1 is put to immediate good use!
