Two Little Pigs make a big difference

Two Little Pigs make a big difference

Roald Dahl once wrote:

The animal I really dig,
Above all others is the pig.
Pigs are noble. Pigs are clever,
Pigs are courteous.” 

Tell your loved ones how much you “dig” them by sending them hogs and kisses with our clever Two Little Pigs card (€40/£35). Part of Oxfam’s Unwrapped collection, this gift will support communities who depend on healthy animals for their livelihood. 

It will support people like Agnes, from northern Rwanda, an area where many still suffer the after-effects of conflict and live in poverty. Life hasn’t been easy – but Agnes is doing well, having learned how to rear pigs and make a decent living.

Agnes, who is now president of an Oxfam pig cooperative, said:  “The impact that the pigs will have on my life [is] that I will achieve food security, earn money as well as improving my life.”

This gift can help someone living in poverty to earn a better living. Farmers can use the manure to fertilise crops, and piglets can be sold to pay for essentials like food and education.

Money raised from this gift supports our Livelihoods projects. Oxfam Unwrapped helps people to build happier, brighter futures.
