This summer, Kulanu received a report from the Abayudaya Women’s Association that they had successfully distributed 90 goats to women in the eight Abayudaya villages in Uganda. This report was accompanied by photos which you can see in this album on Kulanu’s Phanfare site, www.kulanu.phanfare.com

The AWA Goat-Rearing Project in Uganda was made possible thanks to Ruth Wolman, who approved a $5,000.00 grant from the Otto and Marianne Wolman Foundation for the goat project. Many thanks to Ruth and her family’s foundation for this generous gift!

This project is a pass-on project where each participant raises a goat for its milk, which can be given to their families or even sold for additional income, and then passes on newborn female kids to others, helping create sustainability throughout the community as a whole.
