With every $100 donation, cows are purchased when pregnant with her first calf, and given to the mother of a family in the mission settlements of Campoapa. These families are not just given the cow but for months ahead they are taught how to care for them and also how to work together as a group for grazing purposes. The mother of the family also signs a contract stating that the cow will be cared for, that two calves will be returned to the project, that each month two homemade cheeses will be given to another family or an elderly person, and that they will work together as a group.
