Goals and Objectives
The goats give birth to two to three kids every year. The new born starts producing in two years time. Thus these multiply very rapidly and are beneficial to the economic well being of the very poor segment of society where these can be kept and looked after. In hilly areas where there are vast opportunity to graze the goats it has proved to be very successful. Apart from getting pure milk for the family these fetch them handsome money. The idea came to me when on a tour of these areas I was told by a man that he started with 2 goats 10 years back now has 25 goats and has already sold out 12 male goats during this time to meet his other expenses. We have given goats to 655 widows till now. Now we give 4 goats to each family under Microfinance scheme. In eturn they will give us 4 child goats to be given to next widows/ poor families. Till now 74 families have been helped under this program.
