Goats bringing education to students in southern Zambia

Children carrying donated goat

Sponsored child, Sydeny, six, is one of 69 students sharing two classrooms at a primary school in southern Zambia. Having previously struggled to provide an education for their children, Sydeny’s parents Sheba and Atfellow’s lives were changed when World Vision provided the family with five goats. 

Since the family started raising goats, Atfellow says their lives have improved a lot. While drought is causing hunger throughout their community, nutritious milk, as well as the children’s schooling, is assured. “We look to goats to save us from that. We can always sell a goat to pay school fees,” says Atfellow. 

"We want them to go to school so they’ll be independent,” says Sheba. For young Sydeny he likes the goats and likes to drink milk. “I drink milk every day, and I can milk a goat too. It’s not hard,” he says. 

When you purchase animals and agriculture gifts, you’re helping to provide families with the resources and skills to grow nutritious food for their children and transform their farms into profitable businesses.
