How your gift helps disadvantaged children

Your gift can help children living in poverty access healthcare, education, clean water, food and much more. It can also provide them with the skills they need to build a successful future.

Health

Gift cards such as the First Aid Card help to urge the government to provide medical care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in need. And this isn’t a band-aid solution; we continually help the communities until a lasting change has been achieved.

Clean Water

This Clean Water Gift Card will give people living in displaced persons camps in Yemen jerry cans full of clean and fresh water, as well as training in sanitation and hygiene.

Food

Gift cards such as the Pineapple are a sweet treat! It helps children in Vanuatu have access to food and a better fruiture because this card helps their parents earn a living from farming pineapples.

Gifts for children who have everything

If you’re looking for unique gifts for kids who seem to have it all or you’re searching for gifts for kids that aren’t toys, the Duck Gift Card fits the bill! Oxfam strives to improve food access in Bangladesh by giving families the initial tools, training and livestock they need to raise ducks. Households can then use the eggs for themselves or sell them at the market for income.

Gifts for kids under 10

For younger children, quirky ones such as the Chicken Gift Card are an im-peck-able way to bring joy to the giftee while helping provide nutritious food and essential resources to feed those in need at the same time.

Gifts for girls and boys

For gifts that will benefit both girls and boys, the Fish Charity Gift Card allows fishing communities along the Mekong to have an o-fish-al voice in corporate and government policies and practices, so they can maintain their livelihoods from being impacted by large-scale dam projects.

No matter who you’re shopping for, an Oxfam Unwrapped charity gift will make a difference in the lives of many children in need. So why not give a gift with global impact and get your children the perfect present, with a positive purpose?

By getting an Oxfam Unwrapped gift you are helping children in need experience the joy of a brighter future. Happy gifting!

How will your gift support children?

In many parts of the world, people are marginalised based on their age and children are the most vulnerable to discrimination based on gender identity and expression. Oxfam works to provide these minority communities with the opportunity to participate more equally in the world around them. Often this is by working in countries to elevate youth voices and offer more opportunities to children. The following programs show how your gift will go towards supporting children, girls and boys alike and giving them the skills they need to lift themselves out of poverty and into empowerment.

  • In Fiji, our ‘Shifting Power, Shifting Voice’ project supports the economic empowerment of women and people in sexual and gender minority communities.
  • In Papua New Guinea, we are striving to end violence against women and girls, including sorcery-related violence.
  • In Solomon Islands, we are motivating boys to reject family violence and adopt healthy attitudes and behaviour toward women and girls.
  • In Vanuatu, we are creating opportunities for children, people with disabilities, young people and sexual and gender minority communities to earn a living.
