Kenya: The Malindi Mixed Farming Project Update

2020 Update

The Malindi Mixed Farming Project has continued to reduce poverty in the communities and serves as a pay-it-forward project. Each beneficiary that receives a cow or goat is required to pass forward the first offspring to the next vulnerable member of the community. The program has a dairy plant that enables the beneficiaries to sell milk to the community. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the dairy plant has survived and is still going┬ástrong. One of the beneficiaries, Doris, was given a cow in 2016 and has since then given away her first offspring and now gets 8 liters of milk per day which her family uses for income generation. Originally, the family had no domestic animal but now with the cows, they have experienced┬ámuch change and growth in the family. “This is unity in the family”.
