Gifts that change somebody’s life
Rabbit – $16
Rabbits are some of the very prolific animals on earth, making them perfect gifts for poor families. With a 31 days gestation period, a pair of rabbits can easily become 50 rabbits within a single year. These offspring can provide food or be sold in markets, producing a source of steady income.
Looking for other options? How about a gift of a Goat and 2 Chickens for $100? Goats provide milk, cheese, and yogurt, while chickens provide eggs that are rich in nutrients, and extra eggs and chicks can be sold in markets as well. A dairy goat can give up to 16 cups of milk a day. Goats can flourish in harsh climates and also produce valuable manure to fertilize crops. Chickens are pretty easy to raise, families that receive chickens will be asked to give back hatched chicks to help other families in need.
For those who are feeling more generous, you can send a gift of 13 farm animals for $500, that includes a pig, sheep, goat and ten chickens. For more options, visit the animal gift catalog at World Vision.
