What do you get when you cross a pig and a goat with two ducks? A GREAT gift idea! This rowdy mob can help a family in a place like Bangladesh lift themselves out of poverty. Incredible!
“We have been selling duck eggs ... But we can also eat [them]. Our food source is secure ... I can now pay for my household costs.”
— Shumati Rani (pictured), duck farmer, Bangladesh
Livestock are an extraordinary gift to a family trying to free themselves from the cycle of poverty. Pigs and goats help fertilise crops and demolish scraps with gusto, while duck eggs are delicious and nutritious! But best of all, these animals produce baby animals that can be sold at market to earn a much-needed income. Oxfam Australia provides training on how to raise and care for these important animals.
