In the Horn of Africa many families survive on less than two dollars a day. Rural farmers and their families have an even more vulnerable existence as they rely on seasonal rains not only to feed their families but also to make a living (subsistence farming). And in Ethiopia a country comprised of upwards of 100 million souls - more than 70% of the population call themselves subsistence farmers ('gerbereh' in the Ethiopian language aka Amharic). This much-needed project serves as a practical income generating effort for Nazarenes in need in the Horn and their neighbors. By providing animals such as chickens, goats, sheep, cows and even camels lives can vastly be improved. For each donation (any amount whether small or large is welcome) and when appropriate a pregnant female animal will be purchased and its offspring given to another needy family in Jesus name. Self-sustaining natural projects like this can greatly alleviate poverty and share the love of Jesus Christ in tangible and meaningful ways.
