A Gift Of 40 Goats

A coworker of mine just got back from Africa and shared some of his photos with us. While he was down there he delivered up to 40 goats! Goats can provide up to a ton of milk a year and that can be made into cheese, butter, and yogurt. The goats are able to live in poor climates, eat small amounts of grass, and produce offspring for others. The owners also learn how to use their manure to fertilize their gardens. All in all, goats are such a simple but very effective way to lift someone out of poverty. And my coworker told me that those receiving them absolutely loved their goats and were so extremely happy and held them tightly to not let them go.
