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

You are welcome to send a family gift of $40 to $1,000 per year. You can specify that your sponsored child’s family use your gift for livestock by simply asking us to attach a Gift Instruction to your gift. However, the family is free to use the gift for their greatest need. The project staff will talk with the child and family to help them to spend your gift in the wisest way, with the best long-term improvement for the family. You can send a family gift online or by calling our office.
