Where is the support provided?
Why is the support needed?
Goats help ensure families have access to nutrient-dense milk products, and will also allow families to start their own micro-business by selling milk and cheese products.
Canadian Humanitarian, based in Medicine Hat, Alberta, provide education and empowerment programs to vulnerable children in Ethiopia, Malawi and Guatemala. Through our ‘Holistic Child Centered Network’ model, we support the health, education, social-emotional development, and psychological well-being of over 1000 children every year. Our Centers provide each child with educational scholarships, access to social work and psychological services, annual medical and dental visits, daily hot meals, tutoring/academic support, empowerment programs and access to various extra-curricular activities.
To celebrate #GivingTuesday and Alberta Giving, Canadian Humanitarian is running a “Goats for Kids” Giving Campaign. All proceeds will got towards purchasing goats for our most at-risk families in Ethiopia. Goats cost roughly $100 each. Our #GivingTuesday goal is to raise $15,000 and provide 150 families with their own goat.
Having a goat can drastically change the lives of Ethiopian families. It ensures families have access to nutrient-dense milk products, and will also allow families to start their own micro-business by selling milk and cheese products. Your donation will cover:
- Purchase of goats
- Immunization for the animals
- Quarterly check ups with a veterinarian
- Feed for the animals and its young for one year
To ensure long term and sustainable success for each family, they will also receive financial literacy training and micro-enterprise coaching. A bank account will also be opened for each family so that they can better manage their finances and focus on saving.
