How Charity Teachers’ Gifts Change Lives

Meet Abiriya, the smile behind our new Best.Gift.Ever catalogue (pictured above). Despite Abiriya's parents being successful small-scale farmers in Uganda, they were struggling to pay for the school fees for their five children.

When Abiriya's parents received goats, they also received training on breeding and how to care for their health and wellbeing. Breeding and selling the goats dramatically improved their family’s income, allowing the children to go to school.

Goats Save the Day During the Pandemic

Despite Abiriya’s parents inability to sell their produce in the local market because of the pandemic they are managing quite well.

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!
