The ‘Water Buffalo Dairy Project’ raised more than $16,000, and families are already noticing the benefits water buffalo bring to their lives.
Children are drinking nutrient-rich milk, which provides them with essential calcium, vitamins and proteins. The surplus milk is being sold at the market (A buffalo can produce 6 liters per day.) This gives a family an extra $67 per month to spend on food, clothing, schooling and medicine.
These water buffalo have already birthed calves. A calf can be sold for Rs 10,000 (Indian currency),or $220 per family, per year!
Here are just a few of the happy beneficiaries.
On behalf of the Kuljing community, we say thank you to all who donated and supported this project. Your generosity is truly life changing!
If you would like to support another project in a similar way, please head over to our Vegetable Gardens for Families in Bolivia project. More than 80 families are looking to build their own vegetable garden, which will provide much needed food and a step up out of poverty.
