LIVE GOAT SCHEME

As a part of the Economic Upliftment Project, a Live Goats Scheme has been introduced.  The purpose of this scheme is to provide women groups in rural centers with live goats for rearing and breeding.  It is aimed that each member should have a goat so that they are reared and bred to reproduce more.

This scheme kicked off in 2009 when a new page in the lives of the community women was opened.  Under this scheme members receive one goat each to rear.

By rearing and breeding goats, members benefit from the goats' milk as well as boost their family income in future by selling the surplus goats.

Skin - more than a covering

sk1The skin is the largest part of us, the largest organ we have, its surface being about 2m2, and it acts as a physical barrier.

On the one hand it prevents undesirable elements getting into the body, whilst on the other it keeps in essential elements, like water. It therefore plays the role of interface between ourselves and the rest of the world, being our 'visible' part. It is very important for our morale and our well-being, which is why it must remain healthy and good-looking. In fact a good-looking skin makes us more confident and plays an important part in our self esteem.  Don't we say "You're looking good"?
