The direct recipient of Agriculture support will be 250 men and 250 women. 550 families (who have existing livestock) will be provided with sheep feed and dry fodder (straw). During the gestation period the sheep will be provided feed. This will be the winter period when the feed is most expensive and unaffordable. The sheep will be vaccinated to prevent them from prevailing diseases. The households will also receive livestock kit to help them in collecting and processing milk.
