For families with no prior animal rearing experience, goats are one of the easiest animals to raise. Importantly, goats can survive in tough, dry weather conditions, and, with no special dietary requirements, they are one of the simplest and cheapest animals to feed. This gift also provides families with training on animal husbandry and business skills, which helps caregivers to increase their herd and make an income.
No. Gifts of Compassion are different to the gifts you can send your sponsored child. Funds from the purchase of Gifts of Compassion are pooled to support a range of Critical Interventions that benefit many children and families and can't be directed to an individual child.
However, you can choose to send a gift specifically for your sponsored child by giving a child gift, family gift and/or birthday gift. One hundred per cent of these gifts will directly benefit your sponsored child and their family.
Gifts of Compassion are real goods and services given to children and families in Compassion child development centres around the world when you purchase an item from the Gifts of Compassion catalogue. For every Gift of Compassion you order, you will receive a gift card to personalise for your friends and loved ones.
Funds raised from the Gifts of Compassion catalogue are used to support Compassion's Critical Needs, which remove obstacles to children's development and implement preventative action. These interventions include providing safe water, disaster relief, emergency medical care, vocational training, infrastructure, and much more: all issues that need to be addressed for a child to be released from poverty.
Compassion Australia uses Gifts of Compassion funds to meet the project needs represented in the catalogue.
We work closely with our church partners around the world to make sure the gifts we’ve selected will make a big difference in the lives of the children and families in their communities. However, if at the time of purchase there isn’t a need for your chosen gifts, the funds will go towards a comparable, more urgent initiative.
The gifts featured in the Gifts of Compassion represent initiatives Compassion carries out to address the needs of children that require support beyond sponsorship. As each country and community in the developing world has their own unique challenges to address, what these initiatives look like and how much they cost can vary. This means your donation will be pooled with others to fund an initiative.
Your Gifts of Compassion cards will be delivered to you within 14 working days from when you place your order. We send Gifts of Compassion cards directly to the person who orders them to enable you to personalise them before giving them to your friends and loved ones.
To make sure you receive your Christmas gift cards in time for Christmas, we recommend you make your order by 6 December. We will continue to take orders after this date, but your gift cards may arrive after Christmas.
