Kamangazula wants a herd of goats to solve persistent problems caused by poverty. Most residents live on less than $1.25 per day.

Community Problem: The Mwale family of Kamangazula Village has inspired their neighbors. The family has kept goats since 1979. Despite having six children, the parents are able to support the family’s food needs and pay for school fees and home necessities. The goats are valuable assets by themselves and also create manure that the family sells as fertilizer. Currently, many residents of Kamangazula cannot support their families. This goat project is an undertaking by the village to make more families successful like the Mwales.

Community Solution: Raise a herd of 35 goats. Breed the goats over time to expand the herd and share billygoats throughout the community. Livestock in general is a driver of increased income in rural communities, and mature goats fetch good money on the open market. This project will build capacity in a community that has invested its resources to cover labor, materials, and 10% in cash.

Partners: National Peace Corps Association

Outcome: livestock assets for the entire village
