Animale Gifts



Fast to reproduce, hardy, and easy to care for, the gift of a goat gives a rural family a welcome form of nutrition as well as sustainable income.

Cute chicks grow up to give excellent nutrition: three can provide 1,000 eggs a year. Your gift includes feed, training, and hen house construction.


Beekeeping training and start-up supplies yield tangible products (honey, wax), promote biodiversity, and aid in pollination for better crops.


Sheep provide rural families with a sustainable source of nutrition and income. Your gift includes feed and training on care and breeding.

A fish farming kit gives a family in Ghana a new source of protein and a good livelihood!

Animal vaccinations and veterinary support provides rural families with the essentials for keeping animals healthy and productive.


Pigs are an easy-to-raise, quick-to-reproduce source of nutrition and income that can sustain families for years to come. Gift includes animal care training.

Three chickens, a goat and pig, animal care and training, plus fruit trees, garden supplies and tools set up a family with a farm that will give them food and income year round.

Donate Animals to Empower Moms


While gender equality training is an important part of our programs, many women in sub-saharan Africa are still prevented from owning land. Fortunately, the animals in our livestock program take up little space, giving a mom financial independence and the chance to lift her family out of poverty.


Donate animals to provide families with multiple income generating options. Chickens (eggs), bees (honey and bees wax) and fish farms (Nile tilapia or African catfish) produce high-demand produce that can then be sold and/or traded for other food. While goats, sheep and pigs breed quickly, allowing additional animals to be traded up for larger livestock or to be sold to finance new businesses.


For children who are at risk of malnutrition, the complete protein derived from goats, pigs and fish is critical to improving their health. While three chickens typically produce around 1,000 eggs annually, providing families with a rich source of protein. Bees come with the double benefit of improving crop yields for farming families, while augmenting their diets with honey.


Animals are distributed through Village Savings and Loans Associations – microfinance programs that teach women effective animal care and breeding techniques as part of overall literacy and numeracy, business and marketing training.

I sold 10 goats for 6,850 birr, and bought a deep freezer and fridge and started selling cold drinks.

As a result, I've doubled my daily average income plus I still have 13 goats in good condition. Woinshet Tefera, 34-YEAR-OLD WIDOW From ETHIOPIA

How It Works


Donate Animals here. We'll source them there

When you donate animals they'll be sourced locally, i.e. as close to the recipient as possible. This approach provides an extra boost to local economies while keeping transport costs to a minimum.
