HOW IT WORKS

Here's how your gift works

If you 'purchase' a cashmere goat, you help to:

  • Buy a cashmere goat
  • Pay for the transport for the animal to reach its new home
  • Train families in how to care for the goat
  • Grow fodder to feed the goat
  • Provide market information so families can make the most of their new asset

We will use your money on a specific programme. For example, money coming from the purchase of a 'sheep' will be used in Gansu to support local villagers to raise sheep. However, if the donations exceeded the total grant of the programme, we ask that you allow Oxfam Hong Kong to respond flexibly to varying needs of poor communities around the world. We ask that you allow us to redirect your donation to a similar or equally important project, if needed. We believe that it is the communities themselves that are in the best position to decide what can improve their lives, and what they need to work their way out of poverty.
