The gift of livestock can mean many things to a family in need: improved health, a source of income, and an education, but it can also mean the chance at a better future.

Mary M is a 43-year-old widow, her husband passed away over 15 years ago. Mary has no stable income and is struggling to provide for her family through casual labor. The income Mary receives is hardly enough to provide for her children and support them through school.

Mary received a goat through The 410 Bridge Christmas Livestock program in 2012. Her goat will help provide manure for farming, milk for the family, money for her children’s school fees, and an additional source of income.

Give the gift of livestock this Christmas and give a family a chance at a better future.
