Goatery Development Project
In 2017 we launched a Goatery Development Project, in association with BAIF Development Research
Foundation, in ten villages of Chakan. The aim is to enhance goat rearing practices thereby enhancing
income levels of the goat keepers whose only asset is the goat livestock. The goat keepers are mainly
tribals from the Thakar community, who are following traditional practices for rearing.
