Gift Code: 14GO
Zimbabwe: Your gift of a goat is not only a source of food but an investment for a family and their wider community. It will provide milk and meat for a family, and an income from breeding and selling goats in the longer term.
The idea that you can ‘buy a goat for charity’ has been around for a while and is probably one of the most well known charity gifts we offer. There is something that catches the imagination to know that someone will be receiving a goat when the gift recipient here unwraps their present!
There are plenty of people who would like to receive a present like this, but we have some ideas about who it might be especially suitable for:
- Vets and veterinary nurses or anyone who works with animals
- Farmers and people who work with the land
- Pet lovers – including children who would like an unusual pet like a goat themselves!
Adult goats are often the start of a livestock business as they can be bred. Female goats are a source of milk, yoghurt and cheese.
