Nepal/USA Goat Project

$5,200 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 53 people in 46 months
I am collecting items from here in the USA to transport to Nepal  to improve the local Nepalese goat population. This is my third year of conducting seminars in Nepal at various rural mountain village locations to further teach sound livestock management practices to the local farmers and government agencies. This project would greatly assist the people of Nepal and help create an increase in a sustainable source of protein and income. It is eco-friendly to the environment and positively recieved by the Nepalese Department of Agriculture and farmers. I am asking for your help to make this project a reality.

Dan...and the amazing goat farmers of Nepal!

Daniel, wouldn't it be even more favorable for the Nepalese mountain communities if they were able to get a yak instead of a goat? I have been to Nepal several times and know that a yak has greater economic value, as it gives all that a goat does and in addition it is able to carry loads and give wool. I addition, yaks are used to the harsh conditions in high altitude. Have you researched how much it would be for one yak instead of a goat? How do you determine who gets a goat? How do you verify that the animal went to the deserving individual and not a "dealer," who will try to sell the animal instead of it being given to a needy family, or give it to his/her favorite person?

Goats to Nepal, with Dan Laney coordinating this project is worth supporting. Our group wanted to celebrate friendships in a meaningful way. Thank you your work.

I love what you are doing for the Nepalese people. If you can ever bring over semen, let me know, I have some good Saanen boys in the tank.
