Help Provide Goats

Donate To This Campaign

GOATS CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING!

Their milk provides great protein to help children grow. The family can also sell any extra to earn money for medicines and other necessities.

A healthy dairy goat can give up to 16 cups of milk a day. Goat’s milk is easier to digest than cow’s milk and is an excellent source of calcium, protein, and other essential nutrients that growing children need. Goats are practical animals — flourishing in harsh climates while producing valuable manure to fertilize crops and vegetable gardens. 

 

GET TO KNOW "CRAZY GOAT LADY" aka Sharon Baker:  

In 2013 at a church-wide Thanksgiving dinner, Pastor Larry Heenan set the bar for the Sunday school class of third, fourth and fifth graders at Spring Valley Baptist Church, 8801 E. 79th St. in Raytown. He asked that we donate money to buy ONE goat from just our class. That goat goal has been met and then some.

Classes have donated allowances, doing chores for cash, selling donated items and making $1 rubber band bracelets and bookmarks. We’ve had help from our ladies who sew making keychains. We’ve done bake sales, garage sales and sales of donated DVD’s. We have even been allowed to have events at our local Walmart where, with the help of all of our church members, we’ve made enough money in just four hours to buy seven goats.

Our goats have gone to families in Latin America, Africa, the Mid-East, Europe and Asia. “Our story is one of inspiration for those wanting to ‘make a difference’ in our world,” Baker said. “Each goat we buy provides milk, cheese, yogurt and butter as food; they provide hair to weave cloth; they eat noxious weeds, providing an area safe from snakes around dwellings so children are able to play outside; they provide fertilizer for the garden and hope for the family.” The goats were $75.00 back then, there was a slight increase to $85.00 in November of 2017, but that hasn’t slowed us down.

As of June 25, 2024, WE HAVE PURCHASED 1,034 GOATS…and we don’t have any plans to quit!

 

WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW:

Together, we can help families break the cycle - transforming lives for generations to come. A goat nourishes a family with protein-rich dairy and offers an income boost by providing offspring and dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt. In addition, families can receive training to keep the animals healthy and thriving, along with ways to develop skills in finance management and business strategies to help grow their small businesses.
