Deberety Goat Rearing Centre in Ethiopia

Neela and her son Ajani (names have been altered to protect identity)

Neela* worries deeply for her children, especially baby Ajani*. She starts each day unsure of how she will provide for her family, a reality that, alarmingly, is not hers alone. 

With over 70% of households in Emdibir facing similar challenges, Fr Habte and the Church are desperate to come alongside their community and make a lasting difference for families like Neela’s.

In collaboration with the local community, Fr Habte has a vision of establishing a goat rearing centre that will provide nourishing milk for families in most need. 

However, this project is only possible with the partnership and support of people like you.

Fun Facts: Goats are a common livestock animal in Ethiopia, and their meat is eaten across the country, yet many farmers are not aware of the benefits of their milk, which is more nutritious than cows’ milk. In addition, goats are cheaper than cows and hardier for the harsh, dry conditions. Goats milk can be used as milk, especially beneficial for children like Ajani, or turned into foods such as cheese and butter.

Establishing the Goat Rearing Centre means that Neela can access much needed support for her family, and that health problems like malnutrition are less likely to impact young children and babies like Ajani.

By partnering with this program, you are being a witness of Jesus Christ, as He has called us to be in Acts 1:8, which is also the World Mission Sunday message of 2022 held worldwide on the 23rd October :

Being witnesses means loving others as Jesus did and helping out to make a life-changing difference for those in need like Neela and her family.

You can help bring the community of Emdibir’s vision to life, bringing hope and making a lasting change for families in need like Neela’s
