Goats for Gains is an economic empowerment programme that started in 2014 and is aimed at uplifting both past and present TB patients.
In the initial stage fifty applicants were selected and brought to Blossom Farm where they received first-hand training of practical skills and knowledge of goat rearing.
Each applicant was then given two female goats which they would take home and mate with goats from near their homes. The recipients receive monthly follow-ups with Community Organisers from Blossom who ensure the wellbeing of the goats and monitor the effects of the project.
To ensure the sustainability of the project recipients are asked to return two six-month-old kids, of any sex, to Blossom so that we can continue to have enough goats to give to newly identified recipients.
