Your life-changing gift delivered
Through your generosity and kindness we will deliver practical assistance to vulnerable people in our community.
Seeds for a garden
With seeds and basic training, a family can establish sustainable and reliable crops. With access to nutritious produce, the family has food security and can even start their own income-generating business.
A chicken gives a family access to fresh eggs – a vital source of nutrition. Easy to breed, both chicks and eggs can be sold at market, giving families a sustainable income.
Like chickens (but maybe a little cuter), ducks provide protein-rich eggs. And what’s cuter than ducks? Ducklings, of course! Ducklings, along with eggs, can be sold at market, giving families access to a sustainable income.
With a hand shovel, farmers can easily prepare soil for planting crops. Establishing crops and learning sustainable agricultural techniques empowers farmers and communities to build a future of food security. And what goes better with a hand shovel than seeds?
With a piglet and training in pig-rearing, a family can generate a sustainable income through the sale of piglets and manure.
Goats are more adaptable to extreme climates than cows or sheep, which make them perfect for families. With a goat, families have access to nutritious milk and can produce cheese, offspring and manure to sell at market.
Literacy classes for one child for one year
Learning to read and write improves the life-long health, employment opportunities and happiness of children. Literacy classes promote education in the community and ensure children who are disconnected from the formal system receive the basic skills and knowledge they need to succeed.
Maternal health training
Approximately 55,000 Indian women die during pregnancy every year . With an improved understanding of maternal health, women and communities can reduce the maternal mortality rate, prevent complications at childbirth and promote infant health.
An estimated 1.2 million children are trafficked each year . Anti-trafficking workshops educate communities about human trafficking and give practical advice on how to tackle the issue at a grassroots level.
WASH club training
WASH Club in schools trains students and teachers in basic hygiene and sanitation practices, reducing the spread of disease and improving the overall health of the community.
Through the WASH project, every household in Majuwa village, Malawi, has a toilet. “Our kids are now healthy and always wash their hands after using the toilet,” says local resident, Patricia. Buy a toilet and you can help more communities benefit from improved health.
General health kit
When you buy a general health kit, you could fund a nurse visit for a mother and her family, community carers training, tuberculosis screening or AIDS testing kits to help improve the health of local communities.
Clean water is critical to the health of communities, in more ways than one. Children who have access to clean water are healthier, can attend school and can use their education to build a brighter future.
Materials for a borehole pump
With materials and basic training, communities can build a borehole pump, giving them access to clean water. No longer travelling kilometres a day to collect water, children can go to school and women can support their families at home or at work.
Treating worms in children
Worms infect more than one-third of the world’s population, with the most intense infections in children and the poor . With a simple treatment twice a year, students at one school can benefit from better health and a reduced risk of reinfection.
Protect a water source
Water-source protection prevents contamination of surface water, ground water and dug well water by maintaining well and spring structures, testing water regularly and treating water, if necessary. This reduces the spread of waterborne illness and contributes to better community health.
Every gift purchased through Salvos Just Gifts empowers communities to lift themselves out of poverty. The cost to implement each project varies. Therefore, when a project is fully funded, we direct excess funding to projects of a similar nature. This ensures the needs of the communities you support are met and that they have ownership of the project.
