Life Changing Gifts (Literally) – Oxfam Canada
It’s that time of year again when many of us start thinking about giving. Oxfam Canada works to end global poverty through women’s rights — is looking to Canadians to give a life-changing gift this holiday season.
Visit oxfamunwrapped.ca, choose a gift to buy — for example a goat or a set of schoolbooks — you get a card to send to your family, friends, co-workers or clients, and your donation item goes to those who need it most.
Unlocking a brighter future for Parawo and her community
Through Unwrapped, Oxfam distributed goats to the poorest families in the community — many of them headed by single females. Because of the project, they have escaped extreme poverty, met their family’s basic needs and learned more about their rights.
“These goats are everything for my family,” said Parawo. “I feed my small children with their milk. Also, I was able to breed more goats, and sell one to get money to send my older children to school.”
