A life-changing goat is a baa-rilliant gift! Goats are durable animals – easy to care for, drought-resistant and play an essential role in tough times. They provide families with nutritious milk, fertiliser for crops and their offspring will add to the herd or can be passed to another family.
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 that help vulnerable communities who depend on healthy animals for their livelihoods.
You are helping people like Noolarami Kilanga (pictured) who comes from a small farming village in Uganda. In the summer of 2011, disaster struck. Drought blighted her land and Noolarami’s goat died, depriving her family of one of their main sources of money.
However, Oxfam was able to provide new goats into the area and Noolarami now has nine. These goats have opened up new possibilities for the lives of her children, she says.
“With these goats I am now somebody. I won’t miss food again. I'm sure that my small children will now have milk.”
Noolarami has a message of thanks for the supporters who made this change possible: “If a human being could be given four hearts that is my wish for you. Life for women has changed.”
