Its aim is to give the vulnerable in various communities within Africa a means to earn sustainable income and become self-reliant, with its key focus being on vulnerable widows. Under Cause Capitalism, a for profit organization chooses a non-profit organization not as a gimmick, but as a true sustainable partner. The Goat Foundation is the sustainable partner of Financially Fit, LLC a for profit company offering financial literacy education through principle centered wealth.

OUR TEAM AND ALLIES
The Goat Foundation is what it is because of the passionate staff, friends and partners we have. We partner with several local administrations, churches and grassroot community-based organizations as well as women welfare groups that deal with issues of poverty eradication and food security among the vulnerable communities.
Throughout our execution, The Goat Foundation works with existing institutions who have essential knowledge and experience and enjoy the confidence of the poor and marginalized communities we target. The Foundation supports climate smart agriculture through the championing of goat farming, where vulnerable widows in arid and semi-arid areas get a pair of goats each with the aim of giving them an opportunity to create wealth for themselves and attain self reliance.
These goats and resources are purchased directly from the local farmers and community livestock owners, in a move to create an impact in the lives of the people within that community by increasing cashflow and supporting local farmers also create wealth
