Here are some examples of alternative gifts and their life-changing benefits for rural communities:
Buy a brood of 10 chicks, a breeding pair of rabbits, goats, or sheep in honor of your loved ones this Christmas.
Planting trees controls erosion and improves soil fertility. As a result, farmers grow more crops, children have food to eat, and the people have renewed hope.
- $10 – Plant an orchard (10 trees)
- $25 – Plant a hillside (25 trees)
- $50 – Plant a grove (50 trees)
- $100 – Plant a forest (100 trees)
Buy a Fuel-efficient Stove for $30
By reducing wood use by 50%, these stoves prevent deforestation and save time and money, improving the lives of rural women and girls who spend hours collecting firewood.
Plant a Nutritious Family Garden for $50
Family gardens improve health by providing important nutrition, decreasing food-born illness, and providing another source of income.
