      Goal

      It's Time to Gather for Goats!


      Right now, there are hundreds of Syrian refugee families living in the deserts of Jordan hoping for the life-changing gift of a goat. Many of these families have been stranded in the desert for 6 or 7 years with little to no access to fresh food. Gather for Goats is a collaborative project to secure goats for these families, providing them with sustainable nutrition and independence.




      Why goats?


      NUTRITION. Goat milk provides for the nutritional needs of the refugees, especially the children and vulnerable family members.


      INCOME. Goats provide sustainable income for the families who can sell both the milk and the offspring.


      LIFESTYLE. Goats help a refugee family provide for themselves in the same way they have for generations.



      Why should you donate today?


      NECESSITY. The civil war in Syria is still raging, and thousands of Syrian families have fled to Jordan. The sooner they receive goats, the sooner they will be back on the road to economic independence.


      TRUST. All goats receive a thorough health inspection, and the families and their goats are checked on regularly. Every dollar you donate goes directly toward the purchase and care of the goats.


      IMPACT. Goats provide an immediate improvement to a refugee family's quality of life. Milk, cheese, yogurt, and baby goats that improve health and provide sustainable income.



      Still need another reason to donate? Buy a goat and you get to name it!


      If you donate $300, you can name the goat your funds will purchase. Donate $600, and you get to name two goats. Once your goat or goats have been distributed, we’ll email you photos of the distribution along with a geotag of your goat's approximate location in Jordan.



      Thank you so much!

      Greetings from the Young Women from Austria. We celebrated Thanksgiving early and decided to contribute to this great cause. We’d like to name the goat “habibi”. 😊 Thank you!
