Let’s face it, this one is not a hard sell. After baby penguins, ducks are without doubt, the cutest of birds. What’s more, this duck is helping a family in Bangladesh by providing them with nutritious eggs that they can eat or sell at the market for cash that can be spent educating their children. You’re already buying one, aren’t you?
How This Helps
Ducks provide families in Bangladesh with eggs that they can eat and sell at the market. These eggs can also turn into more ducks which in turn, produce more eggs! Many of the people who receive a duck from Oxfam use the money they earn to pay for their education which then helps them end the cycle of poverty.
“Ducks play a crucial role in our livelihoods program here in Bangladesh. By providing ducks to people who are in need, we are providing them with the means to become self-sufficient and the ability to properly care for themselves and their families. And that’s what Oxfam’s work is all about.”
Tania Cass, Bangladesh Program Manager, Oxfam Australia.
