This is the greatest thing ever! At Oxfam Canada, you can buy donkeys, sheep, cows, camels + all sorts of other amazing animals and things for people that need them.
A gift of a goat, a donkey, a chicken or women's training can make all the difference in the life of a family in a developing country. It can provide a source of independent income. And there are no sizes or décor matches to worry about.
I’m all for the donkey, as they can carry large loads over long distances, which really takes the burden off fetching and carrying supplies to and from market. Plus you can strap a harness on them and get them to help with irrigation [they fertilize too!]
