HARD HOOVES. SOFT HEARTS.

We’ve had a lot of fun nights out on the goat, the kind of ‘fun’ our lawyers have advised us not to recount here. Which is part of the reason we give to charity (the other part is that our mums raised us right).

From 1 September 2019, Jumping Goat has pledged to donate 10% of gross profits from every bottle sold worldwide to the good people at Farm Africa. We guarantee at a minimum we will donate NZD$10,000 which could help cover the costs of more than 300 goats for woman in Ethiopia, supporting them to set up sustainable, small scale goat-rearing enterprises that will help them generate an income and provide their families with a more nutritious diet.

This is how it all works….

A female farmer receives two goats. Those goats have kids. The farmer donates two of the kids to another qualifying farmer. Those kids grow up and have kids of their own (aww), two of whom are then passed on to another new farmer. And so it goes. Any kids leftover (we kid you not) can be sold at market to buy school materials, clothes and food. And of course, the goats keep reproducing.

Keeping the goats, and our mums, happy. Winner.

This is Mebrehit Mebrahtoa, a mother of eight from the Tigray Region in Ethiopia. In 2013 Mebrehit was given three goats by Farm Africa. She has since transferred three to another woman, sold nine and increased her herd to 17 goats which provide income for her family.
