Sanma Freedom Goats project was started eight years ago and has provided a practical solution to the problem of child labor –a social stigma that deprives approximately 23 million children a childhood.
Child laborers often work in hazardous conditions. Their earnings are not enough to sustain the family and is a constant uphill battle.
Sanma Freedom Goats is a Christian approach to a problem that denies children, a childhood.
The project stops the problem where it begins, supplementing income for the child labor families. The replaced income releases the children.
As the flock increase Christian families support local churches to spread the Gospel. Non-Christian beneficiaries of the program get a chance to know the Great Shepherd, Jesus Christ.
The impact of this project is multidimensional.
It ignites the confidence and entrepreneurial spirit of the people that comes from the ownership.
The health and income levels of the families increase.
And, as children go to school and receive education, they stand a better chance to break the cycle of poverty.
Here is a note we received:
The goats have become part of our family. My girls cheer at the bleating sound of our goats. The baby goats are cared well. Now my daughter says we can bless someone else with goats as Sanma blessed us with a pair of Freedom Goats. They feel they can make it in life- something we never had since the death of my husband.”
