Animal Husbandry Project
To date, FIAI has provided 19 buck goats and 200 chickens to local villagers. We have educated farmers on the care, feeding and nurturing of these animals as they grow to adulthood. We also have assisted farmers in building fences to keep the animals penned. Plus, we have helped them deliver eggs and meat to market so the farmers can create sustainable incomes for their families. We have served approximately 520 people through our animal husbandry program during the past 15 years. Faith in Action International provides livestock, training, and support to families and communities to assist with food security and improve livelihoods. This program also helps prevent people from cutting down trees. During the dry season when there are no crops to provide food or income, people will be less likely to cut down trees for charcoal or lumber if they have another source of income.
A gift of a goat for $125 or a chicken for $25 represents a lasting, meaningful way for you to help a family suffering from poverty. Goats often have two or three kids a year making it easy for recipients to pass on the gift of a goat to another family in need. This investment can help them out of poverty by helping them earn money for food, health care, and education.
