Help CU Boulder reach their goal of 30 goats in 30 days for women in the lowest caste in Nepal. By donating to this project you are empowering women in the remote Northern Dhading District of Nepal such that they can free themselves from situations of domestic violence as well as lead healthier, more educated lives. Through the donations of 3 goats per family, women will be able to sustain themselves and their families, economically. With economic viability they can then build latrines and cook stoves to reduce diarrhea and respiratory problems in their villages.
The Goal: GlobeMed at CU seeks to provide 10 women with 3 goats each. Owning a goat creates opportunities so that women are economically stable enough to leave situations of abuse in the home. Sanitary latrines allow for the safe restructuring of the water and sanitation systems. Safer cook stoves mean that women and children are no longer subject to environments of toxic smoke. By empowering and educating women, healthier and safer villages are the result of this project, affecting about 1500 people in total.
We continue to support small income generating activities to supplement farming incomes. Many women are now able to support their own families. Many of these women are managing their own lives.
