Heifer International, wif our help, provides animals for families all over the world. they give a chosen famblee a milk cow or a sheepy or a goat, or a piggie,or a water buffalo, or a llama, or a trio of bunnie rabbits, or honey bees or a flock of chicks, your choice.
They can also provide a knitters basket or a gardeners basket. Each selected famblee recieves not just the animal itself but also training in how to care for their animal and how to use the things the animal produces. Once they start with their animal they agree to help others by passing the babies their animals produce (and you KNOW they do!) onto others in their area and helping to teach the new owners about the care and feeding needed, just like they were helped.
The animals dont just help by providing the expected milk an cheese for example but a sheepy or a goaty also provides wool that can make clothes and needed blankets and can provide milk and cheese in quantities that can both provide food for the family and produce enough extra to sell and bring in money so kids can go to school.
