Goat Pair $94.00

What do you give the person who has everything? How about a couple of goats? They are much more interesting than a toaster and will also help a family in Niger escape poverty by providing milk and breeding more goats to sell at market.

How does this gift help?: 

"Things are better with the goats," said Thoko, Tinyade's mum.

Thoko's plan is to buy iron sheets for the roof of her house and for her children to stay in school. Thanks to some Oxfam goats the future looks bright for Thoko and her family.

A couple of goats is a great gift for a family, and even better when the whole community can benefit as Thoko discovered.

Thoko is HIV positive, has four children and no other family members to support her. So she was chosen to be one of the first people in her community to get Oxfam's life-changing goats.

Even before the goats had kids that she could sell, Thoko used their manure on her garden to grow more to eat. And once they had kids she sold them on to her neighbours and bought additional food for her family with the proceeds.
