Gaushala Project (A Cow Shelter for Ancient Breeds in Mangalore, India)

1000 - 10000000


Mangalore, a city nestled along the serene coastline of India, is not just known for its picturesque landscapes but also for its rich agricultural traditions. Among the treasures of our region are our ancient cattle breeds, a living heritage that has been nurtured for centuries. However, these magnificent animals are now facing the threat of extinction due to various challenges. We invite you to join us in our mission to protect and preserve these ancient breeds by building a Cow Shelter in Mangalore. Through the Benevity portal, we are reaching out to individuals and organizations who share our passion for preserving our cultural and agricultural legacy.

The Need:

Mangalore has been home to indigenous cattle breeds like the Amrit Mahal, Hallikar, and Malnad Gidda for generations. These breeds are well adapted t o our local climate and have played a vital role in our agriculture and culture. However, in recent years, their numbers have dwindled due to factors such as urbanization, changing farming practices, and neglect.

The Vision:

Our vision is to create a sanctuary for these ancient breeds, a Cow Shelter that serves as a safe haven for these magnificent creatures. This shelter will provide them with proper nutrition, healthcare, and a caring environment, ensuring their well-being and the preservation of our heritage.

Why Mangalore Needs a Cow Shelter:

Preserving Ancient Breeds: These cattle breeds are a living link to our past, and their extinction would be a loss of immense cultural and genetic significance.

Agricultural Sustainability: These breeds are well-suited to our local farming practices and contribute to sustainable agriculture.

Economic Empowerment: The shelter will also serve as an educational center, teaching local farmers about traditional cattle rearing practices and empowering them economically.

Environmental Impact: The shelter will promote sustainable practices and reduce the carbon footprint of the cattle industry.
