|Sheep Not Goats is a non-profit corporation with tax-exempt status under section 501(c) (3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue code. Our focus is on providing assistance to the poor in Nicaragua via employment on a 2.25-acre farm in the town of Malpaisillo where our primary output is tilpaia, plantains, pitahaya (dragon fruit), and bananas. We invite you to follow us on Facebook or on our blog.|
What We Do
1. On our farm, Finca Buenpaisillo, we grow various fruits and vegetables as well as tilapia, all for sale in the local community. This provides jobs for people who want to work and better support their families.
2. Within our community (Malpaisillo), we look for other opportunities to enable access to medical care, food, and other basic needs.
3.We teach English in order to provide a skill that can increase one's job prospects
