4. YOUR GIFT GOES TO THOSE WHO NEED IT MOST

Your gift will go where it’s needed most and begin to make an immediate difference. Each community we work with has different needs, so we give families living in severe poverty a say in the best solution for them and tailor our activities accordingly. This means your gift has maximum impact.

When you purchase an Oxfam Unwrapped gift, your donation will fund projects that your gift represents. The gifts support the full range of Oxfam’s work – from emergency responses to advocacy.

Each gift in the Oxfam Unwrapped range has been picked because it plays an important part in helping people affected by poverty to build a brighter future. 

Depending on which Unwrapped gift you choose, the money generated goes into one of four special Unwrapped funds:

  1. Saving lives
  2. Livelihoods 
  3. Women's rights
  4. Health and education

Having flexibility in how we spend your money helps us to respond quickly and more effectively in often changing situations, e.g. transporting emergency supplies to often remote communities in a humanitarian disaster. 

We tailor our activities so that they are appropriate to each community we work with, so while providing livestock may be the best solution in one area, we might need instead to help farmers learn new agricultural techniques to combat drought in another.

For example, the money generated by the gift of a Goat will go into our Livelihoods fund but not always on a goat-themed project. Instead, it could transform people’s lives in other ways, by providing veterinary care for their animals, agricultural training or even village grain banks.

Whatever gift you decide to buy, we’ll ensure that your money gets to the people who need it most. Thank you!
