    Rebuilding lives, sheep by sheep

    Bah-lieve in Change

    It’s hard to overstate the value that people place on their animals, pet or livestock. The farmers in Annayo are no different – they depend on the work their animals do, whether it’s the guard dog, or the milk-producing camel.

    We wanted to honor this relationship and and add a few more to the community…starting with sheep!

    They’re such a low-maintenance and resilient animal, part and parcel to the daily lives of Annayo’s farmers.

    The community was so grateful for this effort, underlining how it helped them gain back some of that sense of security they lost in the most recent drought.

    “My husband is the head of our household but he is sick right now, so I am managing the farm,” said Maryan Ahmed. “We previously had many livestock, but lost most of them during the drought. Restocking our lost livestock is such a help to our farm and our livelihood.”

    Today’s change made possible by Mankind is My Business.
