Girls education

In many parts of the world girls miss out on an education due to exploitation, poverty, climate emergencies and gender discrimination. With an Unwrapped gift, your support helps Oxfam rebuild schools, train teachers and improve facilities so that girls are given an equal opportunity to be educated, earn higher incomes and help their families thrive.

Clean water colour in

Teaching kids about water scarcity, sanitation and hygiene can make a big difference in places like Bangladesh. By purchasing a Clean Water Colour In gift, you’re helping Oxfam and our partners ensure that every child has access to safe water facilities and toilets which we install, maintain and manage.

Seeds colour in

When children learn about seeds they’re taught important lessons about the environment, sustainability and where our food comes from. With a Pineapple Gift, you can help Oxfam provide seeds and training for families in places like Vanuatu, so they can grow their own nutritious food and sell leftover produce at market.

Chicken colour in

These plucky chooks are fun for little hands to colour in, but they also teach a great lesson about compassionate living. When you purchase a Chicken Colour In gift, you’re helping families in places like Vanuatu earn a living, while keeping their kids strong and healthy with nutritious and versatile eggs.

Charity gifts for kids that help children and communities in need

Talking to children about poverty can be difficult but it’s also an important step towards their understanding of inequality and what it means to live a compassionate life. 

With a charity gift for kids, these complex topics can be introduced gently, all while helping people in need lift themselves and their children out of poverty and into a brighter future.

How your gift helps disadvantaged children


Your gift helps children access safe drinking water, diverse foods and medical care that will keep them healthy and prosperous for life.


Give girls a quality education so they can marry later, avoid exploitation and make decisions for themselves, families and communities that will make a difference for generations to come.

Clean water

In many parts of the world children have to walk miles to access safe drinking water. When you help build a well, your gift gives a whole community of kids the chance to live better, healthier lives.


Your gift of seeds or chickens gives young bodies the nutrients they need to grow healthy and strong. When kids have access to quality foods they’re more likely to break the cycle of poverty and achieve in other areas of their lives.

Gifts for kids who have everything

In a time where wealth distribution is becoming increasingly unjust and the gap between rich and poor continues to grow, teaching our kids about poverty and how to help others is more important than ever. 

If you know a kid who has everything, consider giving them a gift that will make a big impact on their character and help set them up for a life of compassion.

When you purchase an Oxfam charity gift card your donation does more than just help children living in poverty, you’re starting a meaningful conversation which can shape a child into a leader of tomorrow.
