Success Stories-Believing In yourself


Bringing Hope to Rural Woman

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Dairy and Rural Development Foundation (DRDF) through their Dairy Project are providing trainings to women from Punjab’s rural communities to become livestock extension workers.

“I received fifteen-day Refresher training which helped me further learn about animal health management, importance of nutrition and timely vaccinations against diseases, such as, mastitis and Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD). In this way, I was able to give livestock services to her village.” says Sumaira.

Her expertise has not only catered to a substantial demand within her own village but also caters to veterinary needs in neighbor villages as well.Sumaira happily reports that after her training she was able to accumulate a profit of PKR. 36490 earned over a span of three months by providing basic animal healthcare services.

“With the profit earned I was able to buy fridge, bike and also spent money on my children’s education,” shares Sumaira.The Dairy Project team aims to continue providing support and guidance for women to be able to provide livestock extension support, and equip them with the knowledge, skills and tools to provide much-needed animal health care in her village.

“I am lucky to be part of USAID-DRDF Dairy Project Women Livestock Extension Service Training Program. Instead of doing nothing at home now I feel proud to do something productive for my village and also fulfill wishes of my children.”Sumaira says on a positive note.
