This project is about sheep....lots of sheep! The women need money from sheep breeding in order to pay for their children's school fees, health care costs and food need. Their extended families will also benefit from a new source of income.
First, five stables will be built. Then, we will train the local women in sheep breeding, bookkeeping and selling sheep. We will buy and give each women 2 sheep and 1 ram. After six months, we will have completed these initial steps, however the project owner will continue to follow the women for 1.5 years to respond to questions, coach them and assure timely vaccination of the sheep. The costs of these activities will be managed by the maker.
We will teach a group of five women in the rural village of Boboyo, Cameroon how to earn money by sheep breeding.
