This gift is more than a bit of yellow fluff – you’ll actually be helping to make possible a whole range of life-changing livelihoods projects.
By providing communities who depend on animals for their livelihoods with new opportunities, you’ll be supporting them in a variety of ways, including veterinary care for their animals, agricultural training or even village grain banks.
This gift is available as a printed gift card or as a beautifully designed ecard. Simply make your choice during checkout.
All gifts can also be purchased at your local Oxfam shop.
HOW DOES THIS GIFT HELP?
The money raised by this gift will go into our Livelihoods fund, supporting a wide range of life-changing programmes in Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda that help vulnerable communities who depend on healthy animals for their livelihood and in the past they frequently lost large numbers of their flock to various diseases.
You’ll be helping families like Liku Simon (36), Maheda Gwisu (42) and their children who live in the Maswa district in Tanzania. They rely on chicken farming for their livelihood and often lost some of their flock to various diseases.
After joining an Oxfam-supported project, they learnt about good farming practices including disease control. The family have now managed to increase their number of chickens from five to 70 and have also expanded their crops and livestock, allowing them to diversify the family’s source of income.
