Partnership with Bóthar – GALRO is affiliated with the Irish international charity, Bóthar. Bóthar provides the gift of livestock to families in underdeveloped countries as a means of long-term development aid. Bóthar international projects enables families and communities to overcome hunger and poverty through the giving of livestock and supporting training in communities.

Goats destined for families who rely on the charity are partially reared at Kilbixy Paddocks, and from there they are exported to meet the receiving families in Africa. This purposeful and life-enhancing pursuit combines skills teaching and reciprocity which means that while service users at Kilbixy Paddocks are learning how to care for the animal, they will also experience the satisfaction of making life-giving contributions to families in Africa who need help to overcome poverty in a sustainable way.
