Buy a goat!
At Kathy’s Centre in Mayuge, Easern Uganda, Act4Africa has set up their first model goat farm. The farm enables us to train the local community in best practice for animal husbandry and basic veterinary skills. The small breeding herd also provides an income to support other health, education and enterprise programmes run at 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 herd, please donate £115 here. For an extra £15 you can even give it name!
Built on a 3-acre plot close to Mayuge Town, South Eastern Uganda, Kathy’s Centre provides the community, including vulnerable women and children of the district, with vital health and support services, pre-school education and agricultural, enterprise and financial literacy training.
