If I buy a goat, does a family actually receive a goat?

If I buy a goat, does a family actually receive a goat? | ChildFund New Zealand
Yes! A family in need will actually receive a goat if you purchase a goat through Gifts that Grow! 
How does it all work?
Communities tell us what they need – for example, chickens for a livelihood programme in Sri Lanka. The project staff working in our dedicated communities figure out the quantity required and the cost of buying these items locally (in the country) and any training or maintenance costs. Then they inform us here at ChildFund New Zealand and we put together a catalogue of gifts based on what families actually need.

How does it make a difference?

When kind and caring people like you buy a gift, for example, let’s say a supporter buys chickens from the catalogue then the money they donate for the gift is specially coded so that it goes into a pool of money specifically for buying chickens. The project area receives the money from us (thanks to you!) and uses it to purchase the chickens, cover vet fees and provide training to families on how to care for their chickens so that they can get the maximum benefit.

Your support of ChildFund New Zealand means you are working with one of the best charities in New Zealand to help children out of poverty. 

Children are why we exist.

Through the generosity of our supporters, we help children to access stronger, healthier futures and better outcomes through better access to the basics of: water and sanitation; health and nutrition; education; child protection and better livelihood opportunities for their families. 

We work in six dedicated communities in the Pacific, Asia and Africa. We work with the communities through local partners to our unique Road Map plan to community development. Our Road Maps are a plan of strategic goals that have been identified, selected, implemented and monitored with the community. Having established, strong, trusted local relationships with partners, with whom we have a proven track record with, enables us to do this work. Our aim is that these communities become self-sufficient in providing the basics to their children so we can move on to help another community. 

ChildFund New Zealand has been working to help children in need for over 30 years (we are part of an international ChildFund Alliance that has been helping children for over 80 years).
