Mbaruk Field Studies Centre Kenya

Currently NECT is seeking to raise funds for the Mbaruk Goat Station Project. This will purchase two non-indigenous dairy goats and set up a goat breeding station so the co-operative can cross-breed their 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 would model sustainable and ethical farming at a local and international level.

 Our target is £3000 to establish the goat breeding station which includes the purchase of two goats.
