Diversified Production

Goat Loan Programme, Jordan

 

At Um Salem’s home in Muwaqqar Village, the number of goats increased as did the amount of production. She is making goat fat, milk, butter, and jameed, which is a salty thick yogurt used for the traditional Jordanian dish called mansaf. Um Salem is selling it to her neighbours and this improves her income. Now, she can buy chicken and meat for her family with the money she has earned.

Expecting New Life

Um Abdallah was preparing the sheep for the new season. She shaved their wool because the weather is very hot all over Jordan. Also, she has seven sheep which are pregnant and are supposed to give birth in the next two months.

Milking The Profits

Goat Loan Programme, Jordan

 

In Mowaqer Village, our work with Um Salim continues and this is our third year of working together. She now has 26 goats and sells the goat milk to cover her children’s school fees. Um Salim has five children and her husband is disabled. He has one paralyzed hand and therefore can’t work.

Healthy and Growing in Sustainability

 

IRAQ

The situation for the Yazidi people remains difficult. After almost five years, they cannot return home due to the unrepaired infrastructure, unexploded ordnances and mines, and lack of security as militia continue to occupy their villages. The ideology that brought the violent militia to life still exists, though they are territorially defeated.
