PROGRAM FOR 2020 – 2021


This action will target 163 children aged 7 to 17 in 5 villages.
Five teachers will teach different subjects in two stages: 2 hours in the morning, 2 hours in the afternoon.
Children need to receive this education at home. Indeed, on the one hand the schools are currently closed, on the other hand there is often absenteeism because they are discriminated against by the upper castes.

The necessary annual budget is € 1,280.00 broken down as follows:

  • Salaries of the five teachers: € 13.00 per person per month, or € 780.00 per year,
  • Miscellaneous supplies: € 500.00 for the year.

Established for several years, we will continue this action with 11 villages. 150 women will each receive a goat.

Owning a goat makes it possible to obtain income by:

  • Sale of meat: € 55.00 for 5kg, € 162.00 for 15 to 20kg,
  • Sale of cheese: € 5.50 per kg.
This program therefore improves the economic status of these populations and improves financial independence.

The total budget foreseen is 7600,00 €:

  • Purchase: € 50.00 per goat, or € 7,500.00,
  • Negotiation and delivery costs: € 100.00.

This action started in 2019; five cows were provided by microcredit to five women.
They are very satisfied with it, the sale of milk bringing in 0.50 € per liter, or about 3.50 € per day.
We plan to provide micro-credit for 15 cows to 15 women in 15 villages.
These 15 people want to set up a farm in order to sell milk and butter.
A cow costing € 450.00, the total estimated budget is € 6800.00.
