• Goat Houses Keep Goats from Feeling Baa-d. 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 nutritious milk and nutrient-packed fertilizer, and their self-governing social structure means when a goat's around, everyone feels a little bit better.
  • 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.
  • A hammermill offers an ever-present, local means of pulverizing raw materials like maize and cassava beans into ready-to-use ingredients for every meal. Since many children spend their days helping their families by lugging heavy bags to larger mills located in far-off locales instead of attending school regularly, a neighborhood hammermill serves up yummier, more nutritious meals, as well as more time for everyone to tackle all the other things on their plates.

  • You Are My Fav Card Catcus Card
    We created these three cards for two reasons: 1) To spark more joy in the world, as friendly people write kind notes for whomever needs to hear it, and 2) to provide another means of support for our community partners worldwide as they work together (from a safe distance!) to stay safe and healthy to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. It’s more than nice — it’s good!

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • NEW! Share of a Cow + Carrie the Cow NEW! Share of a Cow + Carrie the Cow

Real cows provide hauling power, fertilizer, meat, milk and an increased level of income, Carrie the stuffed cow provides comfort, delight, squeezability and giggles, and you provide a sensible, charitable example for everyone to follow.
  • 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 water-borne 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.
  • 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.)
  • The only thing more sustainable than Outreach's brand of empowerment is solar power (we're working hard to reach the #1 spot, though). Combine the best of both worlds with a solar panel for community water tanks! A storage tank equipped with a solar-powered pump and a battery to store extra juice for rainy days means that instead of a centralized well serving lots of people, water can be distributed throughout a community, and partners can enjoy their own hyper-local access points, rain or shine.
  • 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.
  • Reading, Writing, Regular Meals.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.
  • 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.
  • Motivate the motivators. Not that teachers are in it for the money, but with so many empowering to-dos on everyone's lists, it's important that all time is time well spent. Teachers provide a comforting, trusting atmosphere for students-of-a-certain-age to build confidence and skills as they students their curiosity, and work toward a future where they can put their knowledge to use and teach the next generation.
  • 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.
  • Garden of Eatin'. A vegetable garden is a great introduction to the concept of sustainability. And after investing the time and effort to plant, nurture, and harvest everything, it's also a great way to make eating your veggies feel like hoisting a trophy and tasting victory.
  • A salad with only one ingredient isn't a 'salad,' it's an 'ingredient.' Provide a variety of seeds for our partners' gardens, and you'll provide an agricultural buffer against potential pests, inhospitable weather, and a greater earning income at market after harvest time. Around the table, you'll ensure that families' diets are more varied and nutritious, and that every meal is as filling as it is fulfilling.
  • 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.
  • 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.)
  • Water sources vary between communities and climates, but many of our partners' access points are distant wells or basins fed by snow-capped hills and mountains above, which can pick up detritus on its way downhill. A filter provides more protection against harmful contaminants, and another way to keep everyone healthy for the empowerment ahead.
  • Look, there on the ground! It's a basin! It's a dispenser! It's a—jar? Sure, why not? Whatever you call it, the function and benefits are the same for our partners: A trustworthy, in-home, refillable means of storing and dispensing clean water that keeps contaminants out while saving time and effort. Plus, it sort of looks like a nose, which is fun.
