Join with Oxfam to help Rwandan children and families escape poverty
The repercussions of the terrible genocide of the 1990s – where more than a million people lost their lives – are still felt in Rwanda today. Those who survived are gripped by poverty, many living on less than $1.25 a day. They urgently need help to build a better future.
Oxfam are a global movement of people working hard to fight poverty and injustice. One person in three in the world lives in poverty. Oxfam is determined to change that world by mobilising the power of people against poverty. Oxfam’s ultimate vision is a just world without poverty. A world in which people can influence decisions that affect their lives, enjoy their rights and assume their responsibilities. A world in which everyone is treated equally. They work with partners and communities to find practical, innovative ways for people to lift themselves out of poverty and thrive. Oxfam sees a future in which no one lives in poverty. Join their movement for change and help people help themselves in the fight against poverty.
How you can help
$60 can train two people in Rwanda to rear pigs, giving vulnerable Rwandans a practical, sustainable source of income.
$120 can help purchase one pig for a Rwandan family, giving them an ongoing supply of pig manure and piglets to sell.
$280 can help provide a biodigester for a Rwandan family, so they can cook with renewable gas and ease the burden of poverty.
