Can I buy livestock (such as a goat, cow or chicken) for my sponsored child?

Last Updated: March 19, 2013 10:49 am

You are welcome to send a child gift of $15 to $100 per year. You can specify that your sponsored child use your gift for livestock by simply asking us to attach a Gift Instruction to your gift. However, the child is free to use the gift for their greatest need. The project staff will talk with the child to help them to spend your gift in the wisest way, with the best long-term improvement for the child. You can send a child gift online or by calling our office.
