Nepal/USA Goat Project

$3,840 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 45 people in 34 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.

I am headed back to Nepal on January 24, 2018 to continue with my project. I will be conducting training sessions with the goat farmers in many of the rural mountainside villages as well as taking items to donate to improve herd health and increase income levels for these hard working individuals! Enjoy "our" next trip!

I have just returned from another two month journey across Nepal visiting many rural villages. This trip was the best one yet thanks to the continued support of so many of my friends! I will be going back in November to continue with the training and donating items to the dedicated goat farmers. Together we are making a difference which is so greatly appreciated! Namaste, Dan

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?
