I am beyond words in expressing my excitement for the event that took place today.
Yet again I got to experience my vision come alive as I joined Financially Fit and the Goat Foundation in Majajani, Kilifi County as we donated 200 goats to 100 vulnerable families.
When I started the Goat Foundation, my goal was to ensure each low-income household in rural and arid Africa was self-sufficient, so far we have been able to sustain 250 Kenyan families and today we get to equip more families.
Kilifi is in the coastal region of Kenya, It’s main economic activity practice being agriculture and farming and around 78.5% of the population depends on agriculture as the main source of livelihood.
This region has greatly been affected with the climate change crisis which has resulted into change of weather patterns making the people of Kilifi face drought crisis.
It has been attributed to the inconsistency of the rainfall patterns.
As a people, this makes me want to pose an important question and ask how best can we help regions that are currently facing a food crisis?
In alignment with sustainable Development Goal 1 and 2,No poverty and No hunger; it is my wish and my entire teams’ to enable and equip low-income households with tools that will promote long -term sustainability.
Women are the most affected population when it comes to the impact of climate change, especially Widows.
With this is mind, and the help of the area leadership, we identified 100 widows from vulnerable families and low income households that benefitted from our initiative today.
Each of our beneficiaries received 2 goats. A Billy and a nanny that will enable them create sustainable wealth with tools best known to them.
Changing the world doesn’t take some of us; it takes all of us, together.- Steve Down
