In many developing countries, women are responsible for raising cattle and other livestock to provide food and income for their families. To give these women the training they need to succeed, CARE teaches them how to feed and care for their animals. CARE also helps these women, many who may be widowed, illiterate or unable to find work outside the home, start successful dairy production businesses with their animals. In Afghanistan, for example, CARE teaches women how to make yogurt, which sells for a higher price in local markets than selling milk alone.
