Sheep Not Goats (SNG)

SNG is a Florida non-profit with tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code.  Our mission is to provide employment opportunities in the developing world (currently Nicaragua) while also meeting urgent medical and food needs.

Sheep Dreamzzz

Sheep Dreamzzz is a project begun in 2018 to teach women to knit baby blankets that are later sold in the US.  The women keep almost all of the profit, enabling them to apply their earnings where they are most needed, typically for food, medicine, and housing.
