A living income means thriving, not just surviving.

When we start working with a community, together, we set a living income benchmark using data gathered by the farmers themselves.
This is an amount that’s specific to a district or region of a country, and tailored to the local context.
We then work with communities to close the gap between current income levels and living income, helping them to expand their businesses in a sustainable way and take them to scale.
We work with local people to create opportunities throughout different value chains.
We’re serious about ending hunger and poverty in a sustainable way, and we know working at scale is vital for doing it.

Goats can change everything. Their milk provides great protein to help children grow.
The family can also sell any extra to earn money for medicines and other necessities.
A healthy dairy goat can give up to 16 cups of milk a day.
Goat’s milk is easier to digest than cow’s milk and is an excellent source of calcium, protein, and other essential nutrients that growing children need.
Goats are practical animals — flourishing in harsh climates while producing valuable manure to fertilize crops and vegetable gardens.
