Goats for Vakathanam

Goats for Vakathanam

Let me briefly tell you about our goat project. Along with the Carlsbad Hi-Noon Rotary Club, we were able to purchase 100  goats for  a very small town in India. Working with the local Rotary Club in Vakathanam, India, we were able to give 100 families each a goat for milk for the family or to sell. These goats were insured and had veterinary care. As baby goats were born, the first progeny was offered back to the community for another family to participate. I am pleased to report that as of June 2016, the goat “herd” has grown to more than 650 and about 80 families are providing nutrition for themselves and a business. 

We would encourage you to look within yourselves and discover opportunities to participate.
