How This Helps
Goats can play an important role for people living in rural communities in Mozambique. They provide manure to help grow crops and produce baby goats that can be sold for an income. Goats are distributed to vulnerable families because they are easy to raise and take care of. Oxfam Australia also provides training in keeping, vaccinating and de-worming the animals.
“Before getting the goats, I didn’t have any hope. Now I have hope. I know that if I have a problem in my family, I can sell a goat ... I feel that I am secure and I see my future differently now.”
