Part of the milk can be sold at the market: 1 liter of milk is bought at about 70 Euro Cents, while the main part can be used to enhance the family daily nutrition, particularly for undernourished children.
In Afghanistan 87% of women is victim of domestic violence, only 13% of women over 15 is literate. The country is consumed from over 30 years of conflicts and leaves most of his people in extreme conditions of poverty.
We want to dedicate our Christmas to them, to the mothers in the world. With the project “a goat for afghan women”, together with Insieme si può operating in Afghanistan, we can give some light to the darkness of their future. The purchase, the transport and the delivery of one goat, costs 35.000 Afghans, 150 Euros.

Milk: source of income and secure alimentation
30 women, of families suffering from serious need conditions, living in Kabul and Parwan provinces, will benefit from this project: each one of them will receive a dairy goat. This will allow them to start some micro income-generating activities. A goat can guarantee an average of 3/5 liters of milk per day. Part of it can be sold at the market (1 liter of milk is bought at about 50 Afghani = 70 Euro Cents), while the main part can be used to enhance the family daily nutrition, particularly for undernourished children.
ONE GOAT…TWO GOATS!
The number of goats in the family livestock will increase, year after year. In the meanwhile, a surplus value has to be mentioned: the goats are delivered with a microcredit commitment. Every beneficiary woman undertakes to donate to another needy woman of her village or community, in turn, one of the goat kids given birth from hers.
Through this project , these women can win back their self-esteem, can recover their dignity and future, and some steps of progress towards a society of solidarity and peace will be taken.
