Chickens are the easiest of livestock to manage and can lay up to 200 eggs a year.
Your gift could enable a farmer to invest in a chicken to provide healthy, high protein food for their family. And surplus eggs can be sold to the community.
How it works
Each alternative gift includes a beautiful postcard recognising the contribution made in the recipient's name. It describes how the gift will support education in the communities we work with.
- Choose an alternative gift
- If you'd like your gift sent directly to a friend: add a personal message in the box below (to be handwritten on your behalf), then tell us their address on the next page
- Or, we can deliver a blank card straight to you, so you can add your own greeting
All of our gifts represent aspects of real long-term projects in rural Africa. As the need for funding and support can change within each community we partner with, your gift will be used wherever it is needed most.
