Our Goal | Challenge:
Bilal Mission of Kenya is a charitable and nonprofit organization involved nationally in the propagation of wellness and aid and offers services in the field of education, medical treatment, and social services. In the small yet vibrant town of Kwale, Kenya, the Mohsin & Fauzia Jaffer Foundation sought to provide help and assistance to the people. This initiative focused specifically on providing Goats. Families would receive a male and female goat along with training on how to raise, protect and breed the animals for a lifetime of nourishment through milk, meat and income generation through the sale of bred animals. This simple aid has the ability to uplift a family or a town’s life.
