How we work
Bóthar is the international aid agency that provides poverty stricken families with the means to solve their problems – permanently.
We do this by using livestock in development aid.
Bóthar works with a wide variety of animals including cows, goats, chickens, camels and bees.
Bóthar assists needy families to overcome, hunger, malnutrition and poverty in a simple sustainable manner.
The living gift of a farm animal gives a struggling family the opportunity to improve their circumstances and, by working with their animal over time, to raise themselves up to a position of relative comfort.
Proper training and veterinary support for three years after ensure that the recipients and the animals are well cared for throughout the life cycle of a Bóthar programme.
