Animal Gifts


DONATE ANIMALS FROM AS LITTLE AS $25

Goat$75

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.

Three chicks grow up to lay 1,000 eggs a year – a reliable source of food and income that families can count on.

Bees$46

This gift has great buzz! With training and supplies, farmers can take advantage of this sweet deal to generate income. Bees are great for the environment, too!

Sheep$60

Sheep are a hardy source of protein and profits become essential assets that bring in sustainable income for families.

Pig$50

Often mandatory yet unaffordable, Pigs are an easy-to-raise, quick-to-reproduce source of nutrition and income that can sustain families for years to come.

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


Independence

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.

Income

Donate animals to provide families with multiple income generating options. Chickens (eggs) and bees (honey and bees wax) 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.

Food

For children who are at risk of malnutrition, the complete protein derived from goats and pigs 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.

Training

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
