Over 30% of people in the Philippines live below the national poverty line of less than $1 a day. Give a Goat was started by Salvador Cariaga, a native of the Philippines, in an effort to combat this severe epidemic of poverty. By providing goats to impoverished families we are able to create sustainability, self-sufficiency, and longevity. Family after family, community after community, we have seen our program change lives, and our efforts don't stop with the goats. We teach goat raisers to use the goats as a centerpiece for more change. Goat manure goes to create organic farms. Goats milk provides nutrition as well as the key ingredient in self-manufactured goats milk soap. And we didn't stop there. We have expanded to build orphanages, feeding stations, medical services, jewelry and craft making, as well as church planting and spiritual development. It is our goal to keep growing, while remaining faithful to our values of sustainability and benevolence.
