How Charity Gifts Change Lives

The cover page of the 2020/2021 Best Gift Ever Catalogue featuring Abiriya holding a goat

Meet Abiriya, the smile behind our new Best.Gift.Ever catalogue (pictured above). Abiriya's parents are small-scale farmers in Uganda who faced challenges in affording their children’s school fees.

When Abiriya's parents received a goat, it completely changed their lives. Along with the goat itself, her parents received training on breeding and how to care for its health and wellbeing.

After raising and selling goats, Abiriya's family could easily afford school fees for all of their children, and they've also bought pigs and chickens to raise and sell for extra income.

During the pandemic I was able to acquire more land to increase our farming so I can plant more food for our family to eat, and hopefully sell to make up the income. We got the extra money to buy land because I sold one of my goats. Abiriya's mom, Beatrice

Best.Gift.Ever gifts, like goats, can change the lives of children like Abiriya, and provide them with the tools they need to grow and thrive!
