In 2011, approximately 40 goats were purchased in Patan and Pokhara. The project is monitored by the BPW of Patan and Pokhara, who are coordinating the project.
Locations: Patan, Pokhara, Sidhupalchok, Durlum Court, Parbat.
Date: 2011 ongoing
Partners: BPW women’s group FONNJ and Rotary District 7510
1. To provide goats to poor families in Nepal as a poverty alleviation strategy.
2. To manage a goat project in PATAN aimed at providing sustained income to assist in meeting the ongoing maintenance of various projects sponsored by FONNJ and Rotary District 7510 - Central New Jersey.
Outcomes: Approximately 40 goats are purchased with SCCDC-FONNJ-Rotary funding each year to be allocated by the BPW group to poor families with the infrastructure and knowledge to look after goats in the rural community. After new baby goat is born, it is given to new family. We hope to have whole villagers with at least two goats after 5 year.

Cost per goat is $75 each.
Details: The GOAT project is being monitored by BPW of Patan and Pokhara. An agreement between the SCCDC-FONNJ-ROTARY and the families hopes to distribute goats to all poor families in many villages.
