Gift to a Family

A gift to a family can bring so much happiness

Provide a goat and two chickens to a family - £70

Chicken are easy to raise and easily naturally multiply on the family. Chicks require little money, space, or food to thrive and grow, making them an ideal source of income for a vulnerable family. Chickens provide fresh eggs that are rich in protein and nutrients, and extra eggs and chicks can be sold to pay for basics. Each family that receives chickens is asked to give back hatched chicks to help another family in need. Goats are also easy to look after and can multiply. 


Purchase a milk cow for a family - £450

The extra protein and calcium are particularly important for growing girls, since most of their bone mass is developed by the time they reach their twenties. This gift will also allow the family to earn money at the local market by selling extra dairy products and the cow’s offspring . This money will also support on the construction of the shelter for the animal.

Purchase an assortment of farming tools for a family - £100

Subsistence agriculture is the dominant economic activity, employing over 85% of the people in Uganda. Crops grown include bananas, beans, potatoes, cassava, maize, sorghum, finger millet, fruits and vegetables like tomatoes, pineapples, onions and cabbage. However, the lack of tools by some households has denied them chance to grow enough food for the family. Many such families have land where they can grow food but they lack tools and seeds. Your donation will help buy a household the appropriate tools and seeds to solve the problem of food scarcity in the family. When the harvests are high, the surplus can be sold for an income to buy other needs of the family.


Purchase quality foot/net balls  -  From £10-£40

Children around the world love playing football and netball. The doctors will tell you that it is good exercise and keeps them healthy. Due to extreme poverty, no money can be spared for such ‘pleasures’. Consequently, instead of kicking real footballs these children kick around makeshift balls made of plastic bags and old clothes tied with strings or old cords. And because they do not have playing shoes, they end up hurting their feet with some of them losing their nails. The worst is that their talent is never developed! You can save many talents by giving this gift to a child.
