Working with our partner - Mbaruk Field Studies Centre, Kenya

 *** Fundraising Event on My Donate from 9 December 2017 to 10 February 2018 Visit our Events Page

The Mbaruk Goat Breeding Station Project's aim is to provide a service to the local community to cross-breed their goats with the project's Toggenburg goats, producing animals with a greater resilience to local diseases as well as a much higher milk yield; an approach that has been used successfully elsewhere in Kenya. This is potentially a lucrative and exciting venture for Mbaruk and one that can model sustainable and ethical farming at a local and international level.

NECT raised money to build the goat house and purchase two Toggenburg goats and during 2016 the goats arrived at the project. Some of the on-going challenges are growing sufficient feed when drought occurs and keeping the goats in good health. 

NECT will continue to support the project so it can become self-sustaining. 

Can you support the project?  Special fundraising event: you can pay for a bag of seed to grow feed for the goats or even buy a Toggenburg goat Visit our My Donate Events page for what your gift can do
