Goat Farming Generates Income
Many villagers were inspired to be involved in the Transformational Community Development (TCD) programme. This month, I have followed up with TCD members and community members. Teaching TCD and visiting homes has brought good results. This month, I have done two important training classes.
Firstly, I did a training class on Income Generation. The villagers who were facing financial problems were very interested in the class. I taught them to become financially sustaining and focussed on how to raise income sources. There are many opportunities for income generation, such as animal husbandry, microbusinesses, raising poultry, vegetable farming, etc. I taught the participants to start with a small investment and later expand it. I taught people to choose work that is profitable and easy to market. I also taught them to use their family income sources to lead happy and healthy lives. If community members raised their income source, then they would be able to grow their family’s happiness, children’s good health, good education, good food, and be able to manage all of their needs. Through this training, the villagers who have no Seed Money for starting a business are asking for seeds.
I did a second training class about goat farming since it is a profitable income source in this village. During the training, I taught them how to build a goat farm. Normally, the villagers use local materials to make goat farms, so they don’t need a big investment. They learnt new ideas about feeding and caring for the goats. They learnt about goat disease prevention and cures. Community members were very happy because this helped them to manage their problems.
