Case Study

camel-case-study“I sell the milk and buy food, cattle milk and sugar for my children. My life has improved because of the camel”. Gayo Haleke, Ethiopia

For poor families in the remote Gololcha community of Ethiopia, farming provides a meagre existence – and when the rains fail, many struggle to survive. A camel, however, can provide a second stream of income.

Camels can carry up to 200kg, meaning a family have a means of transport they can use to earn a living. The family can also rear and sell calves, while the constant source of milk can be sold to buy food and schoolbooks.

Camels are extremely valuable in this part of the world, which means that families can make a good income and provide security for their future.
