Nanny and kid goat $65
What do you give to someone who has everything? How about a Nanny and kid goat? They are much more interesting than a toaster and will also help a family in Papua New Guinea escape the poverty cycle by providing milk and products for them to sell at market.
Goats provide families in Papua New Guinea with nutritious milk that they can consume themselves or sell at the market, and with manure to fertilise crops. Oxfam gives training on animal husbandry techniques to the families that receive the goats, so they are able to properly breed and rear new goats that can also be sold on to other families in need.
“Goats used to be taken for granted because in our culture, pigs are more valuable. However, after being trained in goat husbandry by Oxfam, we can see goats are better because unlike pigs, we can use the meat, milk and waste.” Thomas Irai, goat farmer, Kopas village, Gumine District, Papua New Guinea
