Christmas goat $47.00

This is it, the one you've been looking for. The perfect Christmas gift - a goat! It's much more interesting than a toaster, and can even breed more goats, provide manure for growing food or even be sold to pay for school fees or tools.

How does this gift help?: 

"Before receiving my animal, life was difficult. My husband had nothing either. We had a goat two months ago. That gave birth and we now have four. Now I am taken care of," said Zarou.

For families living in Niger, one of the poorest countries in the world, a single goat can be the start of something great, just ask Zarou.

Zarou's family was one of those identified by her local community as being in the greatest need of Oxfam support. So, we gave her a goat. And now she's a budding business woman.

The goats' milk provides nutrition for her and her family, and Zarou is able to produce goats' cheese which she sells at the market to raise much-needed income. And over time, there could be lots more little goats which she can sell or pass on to other vulnerable families in her community.
