AFCA provides these kits to the communities with refills for the first year of a program. As families earn money from the sales of milk, manure and veggies from gardens, the community must cover the costs for the refilling of kits after the first year.

Q and I hit the road again, this time heading south, towards South Africa. We are going to the first area where AFCA/ZOE distributed goats. It is time to visit the families with a spot check. They don't expect us, so we feel we'll get a good read at how things are going.
This boy and his mother had received goats three years ago because she was very ill and we needed to help the boy become able to care for himself at her demise. He is still young and grandma will take care of him now. Their goats have gone from 3 pregnant ones to 23!!! Their flock is amazing and they are all healthy goats. Since three years have passed, it is time to redistribute and to bless another orphan family with three goats. The redistribution celebration will happen in November and I couldn't be happier. There will be 15 goats redistributed in total this year! Seems like a small number, but this is a sure sign that what we've begun here is working.
