Your life-changing gift delivered
Through your generosity and kindness we will deliver practical assistance to vulnerable people in our community.
Seeds for crops
Producing reliable crops is key to an abundant life - nutritious produce gives families food security, better health, sharper minds and the opportunity to start their own income-generating business. It’s remarkable what a few seeds can deliver.
One chicken can change a life forever - better nutrition from up to 200 eggs a year, and, once the chicken has bred, the sale of chicks and eggs delivers a sustainable income that can be the start of a thriving business.
With a hand shovel, farmers can easily prepare soil for planting crops, starting a healthier life and, potentially, a healthier livelihood. Learning sustainable techniques and establishing crops empowers families to build a secure future. And why not pair your gift with some seeds?
Goats are easy to raise, adaptable to extreme climates and terrains, and provide nutritious milk. And cheese from goats' milk, along with their offspring and even manure can all be sold at market. A goat is a perfect gift for a family.
Support a microcredit group for two years
Without microcredit, vulnerable people with few assets would never qualify for loans. Our community-based microcredit groups give people, often women, the opportunity to start their own businesses, support their families and help their communities.
Support for at-risk teens for one year
Children who have suffered abuse, abandonment or neglect are especially vulnerable as they transition to adulthood. Your support gives teens access to technical education, skills training providers and job placement agencies, helping them build a better future.
Maternal health training
Pregnancy has traditionally been a risky time for Indian women, with 45,000 mothers-to-be dying every year . Health training helps decrease the mortality rate and prevent complications at childbirth. It also promotes infant health.
Keeping hens isn’t just about eggs and meat for today; course participants gain the skills and knowledge to transform a chicken into a livelihood. Training includes flock characteristics, health, housing and enterprise. An ideal gift to pair with a chicken.
Education is key to fighting human trafficking. With an estimated 1.2 million children trafficked every year , anti-trafficking workshops educate communities about human trafficking, giving practical advice on how to tackle the issue at a grassroots level.
WASH club training
Once children have learned basic hygiene and sanitation practices, they become passionate about it, teaching their families and improving the health of their entire communities. This gift educates a class of children, but helps a whole community reach its potential.
HIV care for two years
In developing countries, people living with HIV often face stigma and isolation. Your support will provide two years' assistance that includes practical support like blood tests and linking people to additional assistance services as well as fellowship and counselling.
Imagine not having a toilet in your house. The water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) project means every household in Majuwa village, Malawi, now has its own toilet. That means, says local resident Patricia, "Our kids are now healthy." Buy a toilet and help more communities thrive.
General health kit
Good health is priceless. 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 whole communities.
Clean water is the foundation of a healthy community. Children who have access to clean water are healthier, better protected from waterborne illnesses, can attend school more often and use their education to build a brighter future.
Materials for a borehole pump
In the developing world, women and children often travel kilometres every day to collect water. With materials and basic training, communities can build a borehole pump, children can go to school and women can support their families at home or at work.
Treating worms in children
Worms cause major health problems  – diarrhoea, internal bleeding and impaired nutrient absorption – and infect more than one-third of the world’s population . Children are especially vulnerable, but this simple twice-yearly treatment reduces the risk in an entire school.
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.
