Supporting self-sufficiency and reducing poverty through mentoring, community-led groups, and initial goat donation.
The Goat Project Uganda is a Kampala-based non-profit organization that seeks to empower and support vulnerable Ugandan women by providing them with a self-sustainable business in the form of raising goats. The Goat Project Uganda has teamed up with the Framers Projects, which is a US-based non-profit organization based in Ashburn, Virginia. Framers Projects is a 501(c)(3) corporation that was created for the purpose of raising funds for student research, social entrepreneurship, and charitable projects.
How It Works
We empower women by mentoring them to raise a small herd of goats. This herd is roughly equivalent to 116% of her annual income. Through education, an initial goat-donation, and ongoing mentoring, she will substantially change the life of her family. Unlike other programs that walk away after the initial donation, this unique program works with the beneficiary for 2-3 years, ensuring success and a real change in her economic circumstance. Additionally, each woman donates two goats back to the program for exponential growth to new beneficiaries.
Give A Goat
From our start in 2011, The Goat Project Uganda is still working to grow this program to help even more women across Uganda. Your support is needed for a multitude of resources, including goats, centers, and health care for the goats.
