A dairy goat typically produces about a quart of milk a day, rich with proteins, vitamins, and minerals that help children grow strong and adults stay healthy. When we provide a pregnant goat, the recipient gives the first offspring to another family in need. We also supply dairy cows.More
Chickens & Other Poultry
Needy families receive a clutch of baby chickens that can grow up to lay thousands of fresh eggs every year. We provide the start-up food, materials to build a coop, vocational training, and marketing skills to each participant. Staff veterinarians teach the participants how to construct a coop, mix their own chicken feed, and care for the chickens.More
Samaritan’s Purse provides donkeys, oxen, and cattle to help work the land, as well as sheep and llamas whose fleece can furnish warm clothing and a steady income.More
Bees produce nutritious honey and beeswax that can be used to make candles, cosmetics, or other products. Beekeeping requires only a small amount of land and equipment, and by pollinating crops, bees can increase fruit and vegetable yields. We provide beehives, training, protective clothing, and other supplies.
Samaritan's Purse works with churches and communities to construct and supply ponds that yield high-protein fish or shrimp.
Farm & Garden
Barren land can be transformed into flourishing fields by teaching improved agricultural methods and providing seeds and tools. We provide farmers with drought-tolerant seeds, equipment, and training in rainwater harvesting and irrigation techniques, helping produce bountiful crops.
Fruit trees & Forestry
In hard times, families desperate for firewood resort to cutting trees, leaving the land barren and fruitless. Samaritan’s Purse helps them replant orange, mango, and other fruit trees that yield nutritious food and prevent erosion.
