A sheep can provide an amazing source of income for vulnerable families. Their wool can be sold or spun into clothing or blankets to sell at the market. They also create rich, organic fertilizer to improve fruit and vegetable harvests, which help fight malnutrition in children.
THE IMPACT OF SHEEP IN ETHIOPIA
These sheep will be provided as part of an extensive effort to wipe out poverty in rural Ethiopia. In addition to receiving sheep, farmers will also learn improved ways to protect their soil, deal with pests, and obtain higher quality seed. They’ll also learn how to manage water, providing irrigation in the dry highlands where they live.
