What is the Verde Oveja Project?
When you purchase LVO products, you are contributing to the prosperity of a local Andean indigenous community.
At LVO we support our local community by providing fair opportunities for jobs, education, training, income, and funding towards community projects. When you purchase our products, you become part of their prosperity.
Jobs: LVO employees are all members of our community. By providing jobs to locals, our community feels empowered and hopeful that they can enhance their lives. As LVO continues to grow, we will continue to provide valuable opportunities for local jobs. Our goal is to provide our community with a name-sake trade and skills in Sheep Production. Our LVO employees are tremendously hard working people with a wonderfully positive attitude!
Education and Training: We provide an educational setting where our employees can learn valuable skills and practice farming techniques (animal handling and welfare, nutrition, sheltering, training, and veterinary care), appreciate the benefits of sheep as production animals (milk, wool, meat, and other products), and business methods (sales and management). Our community demonstrates open minds and hearts to learning more about the care of their animals.
Community Projects: All proceeds from the sale of our products go toward impactful projects in our local community; these include developing a potable water system for the community and families, educational programs for children, purchasing livestock (sheep) for local farmers, and donating the use of high-quality rams for breeding to improve genetic quality. Our community members partner very well with LVO to plan these projects and contribute on every level to moving them forward
