What they say
Oxfam: Your purchase of a donkey could be used for buying the donkey, getting them to the families, training them how to care for the donkey, other rural livelihood work, the cost of producing Oxfam Unwrapped (its gift programme).
Tearfund: Should the number of items sold exceed the amount needed for a project, Tearfund will redirect donations to where they are needed most.
World Vision: ‘‘As your donations are pooled into your gift sector we can be sure that each community is getting what they need most. We won’t simply give them hundreds of goats if that’s not the most beneficial livestock for them. We will source other livestock such as cows or chickens from the agriculture and income sector to best fit a community’s needs.’’
