Dear sponsors, I hope you are all fine. I have received a report from Lungalunga about mammas the dairy Goat project. A meeting wit heifer international staf on the ground and our project leaders revealed that cost of one Goat wil be about 150 Euro. This will need zero grazing, unfortunately there has been poor rain fall in the Area and there is a scacity of Grass. the Agricultural officers advice that the project may not be ultimately be viable with unpredictable grass supply. The traditional goats are cheaper but not profitable. The women have suggested converting the Goat project into two. one a poultry keeping project of exotic chicken breed highly marketable in the coastal region because of many tourist hotels. two they suggested to open a pharmacy in the village, employ a phamarcist and sell over the counter and prescription medicine to the local community. There is no chemist in Lungalunga and a needs assessment shows that at least 200 people attend the loca dispensary every day. I could not advice the women to pursue either of these two projects without the consent of you kind wellwishers who supported the project of mamma's Goat project. Kindly advice us what your opinion would be.
