A widow with three children to care for, Dorothy from Zambia struggled to pay for school fees. But when she received an Oxfam goat, she was able to make a change. Now the proud owner of eight goats, Dorothy sold her goats’ kids to earn extra income, which she invests in her children’s education. 
 
“I have been able to sell (some of) my goats, which means my daughter is able to continue her education in the secondary school.”
