More than a pet, livestock at the orphanage provide a renewable source of food and income. The goats, chicken and cows at the orphanage breed seasonally, and the offspring can be sold at market, eaten in the kitchens, or keep to breed another year. At the same time, children learn valuable animal husbandry skills that can help them establish their own livelihoods one day.
Therefore, purchasing and managing livestock is a vital part of life at the Amani. Consider donating 10USD for a clutch of chickens, 50USD for a new goat, or 75-100 USD for a diary cow. This is the gift that really keeps on giving!
