The Goat Project started in Salt Lake in 2013 and aims to enhance the well-being of East African Refugees living in Utah.
|Mission||The mission of the Refugee Goat Project is to empower these refugee communities to generate income through successful management of a Boer goat herd. The income from selling goat meat and renting the herd for weed management will be used to fund youth scholarships for higher education in the communities. The herd will also be a source of culturally appropriate goat meat for community members, as well as providing career development and volunteer opportunities for individuals interested in animal husbandry, range management, and business.|
