Real gifts. Real people. Real impact.
Give families a hand up with the gift of piglets! Pigs are an excellent source of nutrition and income. These hearty omnivores breed quickly and fetch a high price at market. After one year, a pig weighs around 200 pounds and can birth its first litter.
Your gift will make it possible for families of girls who are participating in The Graduation Project to learn about small livestock production and low-cost feed production, focusing on pigs, goats, sheep and chickens. Families and girls will choose the animals of their choice, and before they receive their livestock, they will learn about agriculture practices tailored to the types of animals they’ve chosen. Your gift will play a significant role in providing an income for girls’ education!
This bundle transforms lives with four goats, two sheep, two pigs and the tools and training for a family to start their own farm! You can help them earn a livelihood, nourish themselves and their communities, and send their children to school.
When a girl gets her period, it’s likely she won’t go to school. Often, it’s because her school doesn’t have a girls’ bathroom. In addition to health risks, the lack of quality, private sanitation facilities leaves girls vulnerable to harassment and abuse. But your gift will build a safe bathroom at a school so that girls don’t have to sacrifice their education during their periods!
According to the CDC, hand-washing can prevent one in three diarrhea-related illnesses and one in five respiratory infections. You can help communities integrate good hygiene practices and fight disease with a new hand-washing station.
Fresh eggs are a great source of inexpensive, high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals. Give a family the means to breed chickens and ducks, and harvest plenty of eggs to eat and sell. Your gift includes two hens, one rooster, one male duck and two female ducks.
Surgery. Hospitalization. Special medications. For many children across the world, there’s no way their families can afford these interventions. You can give a seriously ill girl or boy the care they need today and help a suffering child heal.
Your Play Kit will give a child toys like jump ropes, hula hoops, coloring books and bouncy balls. Many young people have never seen toys like these before — your gift will make such a difference in their life.
