A pile of poo $20
Don't let the name fool you, this is no crappy gift! Everyone knows someone who will appreciate getting poo in the post. So give them this card, then we can buy loads of manure for families in Tonga, and help grow their crops without the need for chemical fertiliser.
In Tonga, Oxfam supports the Tongan National Youth Congress (TNYC), an organisation that formed in the early 1990s. The TNYC represents and projects the voice of young people in the country, working in many different areas to encourage young people’s creativity and talent.
This gift, while a bit stinky, has a real effect on families in Tonga. Chicken manure is used in family farming as part of TNYC’s programmes. Manure means people can grow a good range of fruit and vegetables more easily, producing lots of food to feed their families, with excess produce being sold at market. This poo goes a long way towards helping families grow delicious and nutritious food and earning an extra bit of income for a more secure future.
Purchases of Oxfam Unwrapped Piles of Poo contribute to our livelihoods work throughout the Pacific and Southeast Asia.
