Sheep $45.00

This is the look of a sheep that's about to unleash powerful change for people living in poverty. When you gift this stoic fellow, you'll be helping people access a vital income so they can feed their families. I think we can agree that's one marvellous sheep, and one extraordinary gift.

How does this gift help?: 

"This changed my life as the sheep have helped to fertilise my land. Where I used to produce 50 kilos I now produce 150 kilos, which provides enough food to eat and extra to sell to buy clothes for my children," said Isaie.

Isaie is enjoying the results of keeping Oxfam sheep – and he doesn't even own one yet!

Under an Oxfam community exchange scheme, several villagers received sheep. And it's changed lives – including Isaie's. Five of his neighbours' ewes graze on his land, and because of the fertiliser they produce he has been able to increase his crop yield.

Best of all is that under the scheme, he'll get a sheep of his own when the ewes next give birth.
