Criteria for Choosing the Recipients

The families are chosen from a group of local participants who are suffering great, economic hardship. The chosen families will receive training on how to handle the animal and share the experience of having an animal, until the end of our time there, starting with the first family in line.

The families that receive an animal are tought about animal farming and supported personally by an animal care expert.
We appoint a zookeeper from the Center of Production of Milk Cows ; in Nangaramo for the cows, and one from the Naliendele Research Center (Mtwara) for the goats.

The recipients are asked to donate the first calf, born by the first kid of the original cow received, to another family. Sharing with others the young from your animals, along with the knowledge and resources, a network of hope, dignity and self-suficiency is created throughout the village.
