When you choose a gift like goats, chickens, or bees, you really are giving the Best.Gift.Ever. These symbolic gifts are fun gift-giving ideas for your loved ones - and are life changing for children and families around the world. Here’s how:
The pandemic hit 7-year-old Stecy’s family hard - her grandmother Betty had to sell her poultry farm due to rising costs of feed, and all the money earned from that venture was used to provide food for the family. Coupled with children being out of school, increased cost of public transportation and home goods, Stecy’s family was in a tight spot financially.
But then Stecy’s family received the Best.Gift.Ever of a goat and it restored hope for the entire family. In the infancy stage, Stecy’s family’s goat herding project is going to set-up Stecy and her siblings for the future.
Betty received training on goat care, farm expansion, and access to a veterinary consultant. Now with three goats, Stecy is looking forward to how the goats will support the family. “Having the goat makes me responsible, I feed them, help them graze, clean their pen. I love watching them eat and combing their hair, it makes me so happy,” Stecy told us.
A Best.Gift.Ever like goats can change the future for children like Stecy by setting up families with reliable sources of income and food, so they can all thrive.
