URGENT APPEAL - Help us get our goats to Tanzania
Currently in Arusha, Tanzania, we have 100 families who are waiting to receive their in-kid Irish dairy goat.
The more the world changes,
the more it stays the same...
For the past six months we have been living in very strange times. The threat of Covid-19 has many of us living in fear. When life changes, for some it is bearable, and for others it is much, much worse.
The last six months has taught us all some valuable insights in the lives we lead or led, what we deem to be important and mostly what we are grateful for.
Grateful to have a roof over our head.
Grateful to have food on the table.
Grateful for access to education.
Grateful for access to healthcare.
For others in this world, they have never had access to any of these things because they are living a life of extreme poverty.
But that doesn’t stop them living in hope that one day they will have access to these things.
They do have hope.
Currently in Arusha, Tanzania, we have 100 families who are waiting to receive their in-kid Irish dairy goat. These goats have been donated by generous farmers from all over Ireland and are currently quarantining in Shelton Abbey Open Prison before they depart Ireland bound for Dar Es Salaam.
Goats can produce anywhere from 3-4.5 litres of milk per day. Surplus milk is then sold at the local market or bartered for other foodstuffs. This allows families to earn an income and work themselves out of poverty.
So we have the goats and we have the families who have completed their training and are waiting to receive their animal. The missing link is a kind- hearted person like you, who wants to help someone change the course of their life.
It’s difficult for me to ask you to help during the pandemic, but I am asking you because you have helped in the past and because maybe you could again?
Because, truly, now more than ever, these families need your help.
In Tanzania, there are no government handouts.
No Jobseeker’s allowance. No covid payments.
No children’s allowance. Nothing.
You’re it. You’re the helping hand.
