MOULTRIE — C.A. Gray Junior High School’s 8th Grade FFA Chapter recently contributed $200 to agricultural projects in Africa. With the Love For People Organization, $40 will cover the vaccinations, the transport, and the purchase cost of one goat. These goats are then distributed to rural women so that they can be used to provide meat, milk, or additional income for their families. Women in the program receive two goats each, as well as access to a buck for breeding purposes so that they can begin their own herd. They are supervised in the program for two years and receive veterinary assistance during those two years. Ladies in the program are encouraged to use their goats for investment so that they can better provide for their families in the future. They are also taught how to save money for future needs. With the money that C.A. Gray contributed, five new goats could be purchased and distributed to these women.
