For families living in extreme poverty, keeping farmyard animals can be the first step out of poverty.

Common farm animals like cows, chickens and goats can all provide vital resources like milk and manure, which can be sold for money and keep families healthy, too. It just takes some training and support to help families living in extreme poverty to turn livestock into livelihoods.

With a secure income, families like Mestawat’s now have the chance to leave poverty and hunger behind for good, support their children to get an education and lay the foundations for a brighter, more prosperous future.

Take our farmyard quiz to test your knowledge of life-changing livestock:

Concern Worldwide's livelihoods programmes offer people in the world’s poorest places the tools and training to earn a sustainable living. By learning new skills, growing crops more successfully and setting up small businesses, people can begin to generate more income and forge their own path out of extreme poverty.
