Over the course of the war in northern Ethiopia, thousands of domestic livestock have been killed, shattering the only livelihood rural farmers depend on. This rehabilitation project aims to provide:
.....A milk cow for a mother as a major source of family support$1,593 per cow
.....Oxen for a farmer so that farmers can restart their shattered lives and continue doing what they know best to support their families—$866 for two oxen
....A tractor for a village. This project benefits farmers who live close by and have land topography convenient for sharing a tractor. One tractor, depending on size and horsepower will support more than 200 farmers and increases their productivity several folds. The average cost of 80hp tractor is ~ $31,000 USD.
