Buy a goat for Kathy's Centre!

Why we need your help

At Kathy’s Centre in Mayuge, Eastern Uganda, Act4Africa has set up their first model goat farm.  The farm enables us to train the local community in best practice for animal husbandry and basic veterinary skills.

Additionally, goats form a vital part of our HEAL (Health, Empowerment and Livelihood) programme in Mayuge District.  Young women and girls, who have received enterprise training and begun saving with their HEAL group, are given goats to breed themselves.  Such enterprises provide the women and girls with access to their own income, enabling them to support themselves and their families.  Livestock ownership also increases their standing in the community.

If you would like to purchase a goat to help develop our herd, please donate £115 here.  For an extra £15 you can even give it name! Remember to tell us what you would like to call your goat in the message field when you donate!

So far our herd includes Roxy, Cilla, Mabel, Myra, Bluebell, Tilly, Chris, Kay, Fi, Jane and our first buck, Goaty-McGoat Face!

Please also check the box 'I am happy to be contacted by Act4Africa'.  This allows Virgin Money Giving to pass us your email address.  We would like to send you a Certificate of Thanks' for your donation.

Built on a 3-acre plot close to Mayuge Town, South Eastern Uganda, Kathy’s Centre is the legacy of Act4Africa's co-founder Kathy Smedley.  It provides the community, including vulnerable women and children of the district, with vital health and support services, pre-school education, a youth club and agricultural, enterprise and financial literacy training.

The Centre opened in September 2017 and we are still fundraising to resource the centre, including pre-school educational resources and audio-visual and IT equipment. Any contributions are gratefully received and 92p in every £1 is put to immediate good use!
