“One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another holds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” —Proverbs 11 24-25

In Haiti's rural communities, many poor families rely on their land to survive. Yet many still struggle to harvest enough food to provide for their families and stay healthy.

Action Haiti's livestock project is aimed to aid the people in rural communities in Haiti. Life is hard in the countryside; the only jobs available are tending small gardens and cutting trees to make charcoal. The average income for people is less than $150 a year.

One of the best ways to increase the income of an area is to increase the number of livestock in that area. This project will help break the crippling poverty of the area through gifts of goats. Those who receive goats will pass on that goat’s offspring to others in the community, supplying food and income far beyond the initial gift. Through Action Haiti's livestock project, we can transform life for a poor community. We can provide poor families with goats and training in how to care for them. The milk the female goats produce can be drunk or sold to help pay for medicine and schoolbooks. Plus, the goats' manure is a great fertilizer for the family's crops

The long-term goal of this project is to increase the income of the people in these small communities so that they can send their children to school, go to the medical clinic when they get sick, and create a more livable community for themselves, while simultaneously providing a sustainable food source.
