• The Gifts that Keep on Goating!'Everyone loves goats for their gentle, curious nature and sweet widdle faces. We love goats because they're so gosh-darned sensible: Their modest appetites, high output of wholesome milk and nutrient-packed fertilizer, and their self-governing social structure mean when a goat's around, everyone feels a little bit better.
  • That's Some Pig! From their curly tails to their twitchy noses, pigs are uniquely suited to providing barnyard benefit. They represent a cost-neutral source of fertilizer, as well as an ever-fattening value at market. They're so ingenious, they even found a use for all that mud that would otherwise go to waste.
  • A more educated world is one more apt to solve the problems facing it. Give girls and young women access to education, and you'll equip them with the ability to take active roles in the tomorrows we all share.
  • Twice the Goats, Twice the Fun. Goats! Besides providing nourishing milk and lusty fertilizer, it's just nice to have goats around for atmosphere. Two goats mean they can entertain each other in between offering twice the benefit of just one lonely goat moping around.
  • Why did the chicken cross the road? If it's a chicken in one of our partner communities, it was probably in mid-celebratory strut, proud of its role as a delicious, egg-producing, income-generating asset to its owners. Outreach chickens always have great self-esteem, and they always look both ways for safety— no joke.
  • Endless Breakfast. With this gift, you'll sustainably end hunger for a family in need. Chickens provide the renewable resource of protein-rich eggs to help families grow strong and healthy.
  • Pretty In Pink! Three gifts in one! From their curly tails to their twitchy noses, pigs are uniquely suited to providing barnyard benefit. They represent a cost-neutral source of fertilizer, as well as an ever-fattening value at market. They're so ingenious, they even found a use for all that mud that would otherwise go to waste.
  • Hallowed Hauls. Behind the yoke, the power is intoxicating: Water buffalo are strong, reliable, resilient, and their emissions are clean-burning, which is a non-gross way of saying their dung can be dried and used as fuel. Want it moved, plowed, or fertilized' Boy, oh boy, do we have just the thing for you! (Get some gloves.)

  • Equal Education. Take any kid, suit 'em up in a school uniform, toss in a backpack full of books, notebooks, pencils, and other supplies, and presto, they're all set for a fruitful day at school, whether they like it or not.
  • Saved by the Bell. Take any kid, suit 'em up in a school uniform, toss in a backpack full of books, notebooks, pencils, and other supplies, and presto, they're all set for a fruitful day at school, whether they like it or not.
  • Full Tummies, Hungry Minds. Passing notes, watching the clock, doodling in margins' school has enough distractions. Hunger shouldn't be another one. Provide students with three nutritious meals daily, and give them the energy they need to succeed in their studies and get the most out of every recess.
  • Do Good. Do Well. Life without clean water is shorter and more stressful. The addition of a water well in a community is as life-changing as it is lifesaving. It returns trust to simple acts such as drinking, cooking, and bathing, eliminating the specter of waterborne disease lurking in every drop. Without a well nearby, community members spend hours each day walking long distances, waiting in long lines, carrying heavy containers, and boiling every drop, instead of working to earn a living or focusing on addressing other needs present in their lives. Add a well, and watch the rising tide lift all boats' more time every day to earn income, do household chores, raise families, and relax at the end of it all with a well-earned glass of refreshment.

  • Plates and forks and stoves, oh my! Parents prepare hot meals on smokeless stoves, kids avoid the respiratory and vision issues associated with exposure to smoke, and everyone gets a place at the table to enjoy one another's company. Dig in!
  • Soup's On (and On, and On...) Plates and forks and stoves, oh my! Not just flatware—flat-everywhere. Let's stock some cabinets.
  • Waste no more. A dignified, private place to use the restroom offers more than mere relief; it's also a hygienic refuge from catching or spreading serious diseases. Take a seat, make a splash, and feel the flush!

  • Ox

    $333
    Ollie, Ollie. When our community partners in dry climates need help with routine heavy labor and a source of reliable fertilizer, they get an ox, and they get to work. Oxen are so casually helpful that with every step, they're capable of tilling a field, moving heavy equipment, or taxiing locals, all while the ox thinks it's out for a pleasant stroll. Win-win!

    Have a Cow, Man.'Everyone knows what cows do: Milk? Check. Beef? You bet. Fertilizer' You're already standing in it. Even without the mark of a hot iron, cows have truly excellent branding.
  • Student Bodies. Most kids giddily splash around in mud puddles and engage in contests to determine by taste who among them has the dirtiest hands. We can't blame them for their enthusiasm, but we can educate them on the steps they can take to wash up for their own well-being. There's nothing wrong with a lot of good, clean fun, either.

  • Have a Rice Day. A bag of rice can be the only thing that separates a family from an empty pantry during seasonal stretches between harvests. Help minimize the worry, stress, and negative health effects of chronic hunger, keep our partners healthy, and allow for the simple pleasure of families gathering to share a meal each day.
  • Rainmakers. Treadle pumps are a perfect solution for farmers who lack access to mechanical means of watering their thirsty crops. As a bonus, with their hands free, those operating the pump can share a morale-boosting 'thumbs-up' with a partner whenever the need arises.
  • Plow-er Power. There's no need to burden beasts. A water buffalo can accomplish only so much on its own, but yokes and plows make these buddies into 'sustainabili-buddies,' both alone and in pairs.
  • Let's Plants. Gardening might seem like a solitary affair, but it's really a partnership between a person and a plant. Some vegetables and herbs need a little extra attention when it comes to maintaining their climate. A greenhouse helps coax them from seed to bloom to a healthy new component of every meal.
  • Farmer Fund-amentals. Agricultural practices evolved over thousands of years, so new farmers have some catching up to do. Forget about teaching a person to fish—teach people to farm, and you'll equip them with valuable skills, as well as giving us a more expansive metaphor for sustainable success we can use in our future marketing materials!
  • They Can Dig It. If you're a farmer, you're going to need some tools if you plan on growing more than weeds and ferns. Outfit a farmer with shovels, rakes, pitchforks, hoes, and a litany of other instruments to make the soil sing.
  • Stay Classy, Kids. Want enduring solutions to global poverty? Start young. Fund a classroom, and give kids the best shot at a better tomorrow by making the critical thinking skills and the pursuit of knowledge a lifelong habit.
  • Make Classy Kids Classier. You want enduring solutions to global poverty? Start early. Fund a classroom and give kids the best shot at a better tomorrow by making the pursuit of knowledge a lifelong habit.
  • Lavaplatos Sinks, Hope Floats. Lavaplatos, the Spanish word for "dishwasher," provides the most basic, effective means of draining excess water used for bathing, laundry and food preparation away from homes. The basin's strikingly sensible design, ease of installation, and hygienic efficacy definitely make it a life-changer, if not a life-saver. Recipients share a portion of the cost for each basin, which has been modified from its original design to better suit our communities.
  • Duck, Duck, Choose. In an uncertain world, you can count on ducks. They're here to help! As self-starters, they give eggs regularly and without complaint, and their fastidious nature minimizes upkeep costs. They hold up their end of the arrangement. Any incidental costs? Just put it on their bill.
  • The High-Water Mark. In parts of the world without easy access to clean water, residents face the daily dilemma of how to collect water from shallow springs, which can be a frustrating, interminable ordeal. Hand pumps, constructed from a few simple, affordable components, provide an efficient, refreshing solution that saves time, energy, and lives. We'll drink to that!
  • Trees are models of generosity in the natural world. Here, have some shade. How about some wood you can sell at market or use for heating and cooking? Plenty you can do with these leaves! Might as well make this air cleaner and sweeter, too. Trees show all the other plants what it's like to be better than bush league.
  • Tool Time! Help a family literally put a roof over their heads, build stronger foundations, and see things in a new light with the addition of a short-term home-improvement loan to empower residents—repairs and the addition of modern amenities such as electricity or plumbing. With enough care, every house feels like home.
  • Goats and ducks living together? Sounds like a recipe for quite a party. They spend their days producing wholesome, dairy-based gifts and nutrient-rich fertilizer for their owners, but their nights are full of gossip and makeovers.
  • Malachite Necklace
    Green and Bear It. Handmade in an Outreach affiliated community in DR Congo, each piece of malachite is utterly unique, dappled with swirling spirals, banded stripes, and sparkling spots in every shade of green. Wearing one serves as an opportunity to share stories of Outreach's work, as well as standing as a symbol of the lasting impact in communities worldwide.  
  • Use the (Work) Force. Empower women, men, and parents to apply their skills, labor, and ingenuity to earn a living and build a career. Specialization in a given trade or field means business owners can command a fair rate for their goods or services, and patrons can meet their own farming, business, or household needs more effectively.
  • You Look Nice Today. Before you walk a mile in anyone's shoes, you should slip on a pair of Outreach-branded socks! Just like Outreach's work in communities around the world, these socks are high-quality, long-lasting, flexible, a great fit for any style' and also a unique way to let everyone know they should follow in your footsteps.
  • All Heart, Fewer Sleeves. Turn some heads and change some minds. Show your commitment to Outreach's brand of goodness by looking the part—our teams in the field, as well as everyone at HQ, wear these regularly as we work with communities to create a sustainable end to poverty. Unlike this shirt, you'll never fold. Grey Medium is currently out of stock! We apologize for the inconvenience.'
  • No, not a "care package" for animals, mailing a batch of cookies to beasts of burden from back home—an "animal care" package, for people! This year, provide a suite of vaccines, wellness clinics and thorough instruction for new animal owners to help them best care for their animals. If the animals are well-behaved, they might get some cookies, but we're not promising anything.
  • Dish It Out. Bring families together and help them fill their tummies with nutritious, home-cooked meals, while they fill their hearts with memories of the time they spend together.
  • Sure, you can save some money building a house out of sticks or straw. But for real, lasting shelter, you're gonna want to invest in something more resistant to heat, cold, rain, and the huffs and puffs of pushy wolves. Just like all of Outreach's work, the right materials, expertly applied, last a lifetime.
  • Spread Generosity, Not Germs. Bad news: Poor hygiene is one of the most persistent, ruinous issues facing those in impoverished communities. Good news: Hand-washing stations are a simple, social way to promote hygienic habits, so the only thing going viral is the news of how to stay healthy.
  • Fill 'er Up. It's hard to improve on the bucket. A time-tested means of conveyance, it remains the most sensible, effective means to transport most liquids and many solids. With water collection such a central part of daily life in Outreach-affiliated communities, buckets are on every list.
  • Farmer Fund-amentals. Agricultural practices evolved over thousands of years, so new farmers have some catching up to do. Forget about teaching a person to fish—teach people to farm, and you'll equip them with valuable skills, as well as giving us a more expansive metaphor for sustainable success we can use in our future marketing materials!
  • Keep animals cozy, dry, and safe, so their owners can keep them happy, healthy, and profitable. It's not just an animal house, it's an animal home.
