Desalegn lives in Ethiopia. Desalegn’s mum and dad were struggling to feed their children and they had no livestock to give them food or money. But then, after receiving help from Save the Children's livelihoods project, including two goats, the family celebrated – they could finally look forward to a much better standard of living.

Two goats can give a family milk, meat, and an income. The adult goats will breed and the baby goats will fetch a good price at market, bringing in enough money to send the kids to school (the human kids, not all those baby goats). This gift could help provide a family with a livelihood.
