Presence in the country:
In September-October 2018, VSF-Sweden started a new education project for poor women in Bangladesh . The first project phase included a twelve-day training for 17 women who were educated on goats’ health and care. Women were trained on goats feeding, vaccination, etc. and on how to prevent the mot common diseases.
The goal of the project is to increase women’s knowledge and skills when it comes to goat keeping and thus improve income levels in their households and give them the opportunity to start a small family farm, which leads to increased production of goat milk and meat.
VSF Sweden has continued the collaboration with MLAF during 2019-20 and the goal now is that all women who pass the final test will each get their own goat.
