Give a Kid a Kid is a special program run by the Christian Veterinary Mission in Haiti.  The project trains local volunteers who in turn teach 50 children about animal husbandry, otherwise known as domesticated animal farming.  Each child that goes through this education process receives a kid, a term meaning young goat.  The children take the kid back to their home where it benefits the community through milk production and offspring.  This special project is also self-sustaining because the first offspring of each goat is always returned to the project to support the next generation of participants.  This cutting edge program is teaching that respect and proper care for animals can help nourish an entire community.  Christian Veterinary Mission also operates other projects in Haiti related to animal welfare including veterinarian education and spay and neuter.  SPCA International is honored to support Give a Kid a Kid’s invaluable international work.
