Admittedly, I love goats. Being an Animal Sciences major affords me this quirk. But I think anyone would love goats after seeing them through the eyes of the residents of Mafraq and Gilead here in Jordan.
These days I’m learning about Global Hope Network, an organization that believes everyone deserves adequate food, clean water, wellness, education and a means to generate income. These necessities are scarce in some villages in Jordan.
The people of GHNI partnered with people from impoverished rural areas to answer one questions: what will help?
The response? Goats.
It sounds simple. But these animals are making a big impact by providing nutrition and income to families in rural Jordan. Have a look!

- Interested in livestock and agricultural development projects? Learn more from Heifer International (heifer.org). They create similar projects across the globe.
- Pray for the people of Gilead and Mafraq. Pray for their well being and for the success of their goat projects.
